BLACK & WHITE
Music by: Igor Stravinsky
Choreography by: George Balanchine
Stravinsky Violin Concerto
Balanchine’s ingenious choreography for this signature “black and white” ballet accentuates the symmetries within Stravinsky’s brilliant score.
Monumentum pro Gesualdo
Coupled with Movements for Piano and Orchestra in performance, this streamlined leotard ballet arrests viewers with its formal beauty and simplicity.
Movements for Piano and Orchestra
A signature leotard ballet, Movements for Piano and Orchestra’s dissonance and electric currents sweep on a wave of exacting precision.
This lively dance for a couple, set to onstage piano and violin accompaniment, ends with a poignant play on light and shadow.
Symphony in Three Movements
Bold and breathtakingly jet-propelled, Symphony in Three Movements is a kinetic tour de force, striking for its simplicity and power.
Venue: David H. Koch Theater
The David H. Koch Theater is a traditional proscenium theater with seating for 2,544. Part of New York’s famed Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts complex, the theater occupies the south side of the main plaza (at Columbus Avenue & 63rd Street) that it shares with the Metropolitan Opera House and Avery Fisher Hall. The David H. Koch Theater is home to New York City Ballet.
The theater, designed by architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, opened on April 23, 1964 and was formerly known as the New York State Theater. It continues to undergo a series of renovations and improvements to make it state-of-the-art in all technical areas.
The auditorium features a hybrid of traditional and continental style seating on the orchestra level, five “Rings” (balconies), faced with jewel-like faceted lights and a large spherical chandelier in the gold paneled ceiling. The lobby features many fine examples of modern art.
