Fall Ballet

Fall Ballet

La Source
George Balanchine

A ballet’s ballet, this “frothy, playful classical wonder” (New York City Ballet) began as a pas de deux choreographed on the Jacobs School’s late dance icon, Distinguished Professor Violette Verdy, and John Prinz to music by Léo Delibes. Verdy enthused that it “is a translation, in choreography, of great singing.” A year later, Balanchine added divertissements and nine more dancers.

World Premiere
Christian Claessens

A long-standing and revered Jacobs School faculty member, Christian Claessens is a former member of Dutch National Ballet, toured internationally as a soloist in several troupes, and directed his own ballet school. This neo-classical work is set to music by Jacobs faculty composer Don Freund.

Justin Peck

Tony Award-winning Peck, resident choreographer for New York City Ballet, and visual artist Shepard Fairey collaborated to create this beautiful synthesis of dance and street art for Miami City Ballet. A score by Bohuslav Martinů complements their use of patterns and symmetry.

Shibuya Blues
Annabelle Lopez Ochoa

Inspired by one of the busiest districts in Tokyo, international award-winning Colombian-Belgian choreographer Ochoa said she wanted “to go from a mechanical phrase into phrases that would move into space” for this abstract piece set to an eclectic and sometimes cacophonous soundscape.
