Why See Pennsylvania Ballet: Russian Suite?

Witness history as Alexei Ratmansky's bold Jeu de Cartes premieres in North America. This vigorous abstract work crafts a visual expression of Stravinsky's score of the same name. The French title translates to "The Card Game," which for Ratmansky, simply addresses the "gamble" of choreographing to Stravinsky's musical complexities.

Two diverse Balanchine treasures complete the program. Raymonda Variations is a grand lesson in classical technique, featuring a principal couple and corps. Slaughter on Tenth Avenue offers a sassy one-act parody of Broadway, Russian ballet, and the mob.
