Balanchine festival in New York Fall 2018



Eight of the World’s Greatest Ballet Companies
Six Distinct Programs
An Unprecedented Event

In 1948 George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein founded New York City Ballet at City Center, New York. It was here that Balanchine continued to develop his definitive style, which remains at the pinnacle of modern ballet. Many of Balanchine’s iconic ballets from that time had premieres at this historic theater. The thirteen different pieces chosen for this unprecedented international tribute will be performed by eight of the world’s greatest ballet companies, accompanied by the New York City Ballet Orchestra.

Balanchine: The City Center Years will feature performances by American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey Ballet, Mariinsky Ballet, Miami City Ballet, New York City Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, The Royal Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet.

The six performances are complemented by two special Studio 5 programs on October 25 and 29, and a special archival exhibition at City Center.
Balanchine: The City Center Years is part of New York City Center's 75th Anniversary Season.
