Choreography by George Balanchine
Be inspired as we celebrate one of the 20th century’s greatest choreographers, George Balanchine, with three of his masterpieces in one magical performance.
Slaughter on Tenth Avenue – An audience favorite with showbiz charm, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is an alluring ballet about a jealous Russian premier danseur and his hoofing American rival. Taken from the Broadway musical On Your Toes, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue was the first of four Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musicals choreographed by Balanchine.
Serenade – The first ballet Balanchine choreographed in America, Serenade is a romantic work of massive sweep set to a transcendent Tchaikovsky score, echoing themes of betrayal and alluding to images of protection.
Bourrée Fantasque Arizona premiere – Balanchine takes comic aim at many of the conventions that characterize classical dance while providing glimpses of popular dances such as the tango and the can-can. Bourrée Fantasque moves from comic absurdity, to dazzling hilarity with astounding shifts of geometric formations.
