Celebrating one of the 20th century’s most famous composers
We celebrate the music of famed Russian-born composer Igor Stravinsky with four diverse and captivating works set to his music, spanning both the 20th and 21st centuries. George Balanchine’s Apollo tells the story of the young god of music; when it premiered, it brought the 24-year-old choreographer international attention. Stravinsky Violin Concerto is classic Balanchine, yet another of the many collaborations between the choreographer and composer. The program also includes the company premiere Jerome Robbins’ The Cage, which vividly portrays a group of female creatures, and a world premiere by our acclaimed Choreographer in Residence, Matthew Neenan.
