A Look Back - Spring Ballet

A Look Back

SWAN LAKE ACT 2
Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov

Even with the sensational score by Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake was initially a failure. But, in 1895, with the help of Petipa and Ivanov, this work took flight and became one of the most beloved ballets of all time. Certain to delight tutu fans everywhere!


AGON PAS DE TROIS
George Balanchine

See Stravinsky’s complicated rhythms and often-challenging melodies, representing a transformation in ballet musical accompaniment, in this 1957 choreography. Balanchine made a statement of solidarity with the Civil Rights movement by casting Black dancer Arthur Mitchell as the primary principal.


BOURNONVILLES SUITE
August Bournonville

Be transported to a world of characters painted by one of the most cherished choreographers in history. Bournonville’s light-hearted and entertaining work is an exercise in finding a new language with which to communicate.
