Scherzo à la Russe

Music by: Igor Stravinsky

Choreography by: George Balanchine

This brief, all-female ballet is a light-hearted and buoyant work that evokes the movements of Russian folk dances.

Divertimento from ‘Le Baiser de la Fée’

Music by: Igor Stravinsky

Choreography by: George Balanchine

Incorporating melodies by Tschaikovsky, Stravinsky’s divertimento is the passionate yet mysteriously foreboding groundwork for Balanchine’s ephemeral choreography.

Danses Concertantes

Music by: Igor Stravinsky

Choreography by: George Balanchine

The mercurial movements of this intoxicating ballet feature a series of witty pas de trois that are simultaneously fanciful and invigorating.


Music by: Igor Stravinsky

Choreography by: George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins

Dressed in Chagall’s exquisite sets and costumes, Firebird illustrates an enchanting fairytale and the fantastical creatures of its strange world.

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.
