Why See Pennsylvania Ballet - All Stravinsky Program?
Step into Spring with Stravinsky
Pennsylvania Ballet explores the ongoing genius of Russian born maestro Igor Stravinsky in this program dedicated to his most enduring works for the ballet, including two collaborations with celebrated 'father of American ballet' George Balanchine and a world premiere from the company's own Choreographer in Residence, Matthew Neenan.
Created in 1928, Balanchine's genre-defining hit concerning the Greek God of music is revered as one of the world's best contemporary ballets, fusing the past and present to craft the future of modern dance.
Stravinsky Violin Concerto
The second piece created by Balanchine to his Violin Concerto, this exquisite work defines symmetry with one of the choreographer's most memorable Pas de deux.
A vibrant work that looks at the instincts of female insects choreographed by Jerome Robbins, The Cage draws on the haunting strings of Stravinsky's 'Concerto in D' to discover the feral nature of predator vs. prey.
From Matthew Neenan comes a brand new work. Details TBC
Opening night: 4 April 2019
