Mixed Repertory Program
Voices of Spring (Ashton/J. Strauss II)
Number Nine (Wheeldon/Torke)
In Trio, Tomasson captures the varied emotional tones of Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence in an "elegant and engrossing" (Los Angeles Times) production. San Francisco Ballet Choreographer in Residence Yuri Possokhov's RAkU, set to an original score by Shinji Eshima, is "a gripping, virtuoso piece" (San Francisco Examiner). In Sir Frederick Ashton's lighthearted and fleet-footed pas de deux Voices of Spring, a ballerina and her partner follow the swirling melodies of the waltz. Christopher Wheeldon's Number Nine, featuring a large ensemble of 24 dancers, is set to an exhilarating score by Michael Torke.

Behold the works of Balanchine through the eyes of his muse…
The Kennedy Center's own The Suzanne Farrell Ballet returns in their 11th annual season for seven dazzling performances. A renowned ballerina and George Balanchine protégée, Suzanne Farrell has become a "tireless Balanchine preservationist and one of the foremost interpreters of the great choreographer's work" (The New York Times). Her company presents two all-Balanchine programs, including company premieres of Valse-Fantaisie, the Intermezzo from Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet, and Prodigal Son. The engagement also brings the company premiere of the inventive Danses Concertantes, plus Divertimento No. 15, presented by the company as a full ballet for the first time since 2005. Both programs will close with Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, the ballet featured in Richard Rodgers's musical On Your Toes.
