''The Concert, surely the most comic ballet in existence.” – The New York Times
From the banks of the Vltava River to the grandeur of a Russian palace to the rain-drenched sidewalks of Central Park, the spring repertory program is a fantastic voyage led by the grand masters of choreography. Jiří Kylián's Sinfonietta is an exuberant tribute to the Czech choreographer's homeland. Ballet Imperial is George Balanchine's homage to St. Petersburg, to the choreographer Marius Petipa, who he referred to as "the father of classic ballet," and to Russia's greatest composer, Peter Tchaikovsky. The Concert is famed American choreographer Jerome Robbins's laugh-out-loud funny reflection on the active imaginations of New York City concert goers.
