Created near the end of his career, Glass Pieces is a showcase showcase of Jerome Robbins’ expansive scope and streamlined style. The ballet captures the pulsating heartbeat of metropolitan life with its charged choreography, concluding in a finale that propels the corps de ballet across the stage at an electrifying pace.

Justin Peck has become a worldwide phenomenon, choreographing around the world for stage and film. He is now New York City Ballet’s Resident Choreographer, a Tony Award-winner for his choreography in the Broadway revival of Carousel, and was tapped by Steven Spielberg to choreograph the film adaptation of West Side Story. An amorous ballet with nine dancers, Belles-Lettres was choreographed for NYCB’s 2014 Fall Gala.

Rodeo (The Courting at Burnt Ranch)
With its world famous score by Aaron Copland, Rodeo (pronounced Ro-day-oh) is Agnes de Mille’s most beloved ballet. A touching story of a misfit tomboy who doesn’t quite fit into her community, but still in search of love. The ballet is both robust and tender, and received 22 curtain calls after de Mille danced the leading role on opening night in 1942. Rodeo is an optimistic celebration of the American character.
Choreography: Agnes de Mille
Music: Aaron Copland
