Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon, Jorma Elo and George Balanchine | Music: György Ligeti, Jean Sibelius, Pyotr Tchiakovsky
Marvel at three works from award-winning choreographers who are considered masters of ballet, featuring pure classical dancing at its best with contemporary twists that go where no choreographer has gone before. Polyphonia, which is widely regarded as Tony-award-winning Christopher Wheeldon’s breakthrough contemporary work, showcases modern choreography with an understanding of the past. Dancers move at the speed of light while articulating the body in perfect harmony with music by Jean Sibelius in Jorma Elo’s 1st Flash. Plus, see why George Balanchine is hailed as the father of 20th century dance in Theme and Variations, which features a classic Tchaikovsky score, theme and 12 variations, culminating in a polonaise.
