Monumentum pro Gesualdo – Stravinsky/Balanchine – Coupled with Movements for Piano and Orchestra in performance, this streamlined leotard ballet arrests viewers with its formal beauty and simplicity.

Movements for Piano and Orchestra – Stravinsky/Balanchine – A signature leotard ballet, Movements for Piano and Orchestra’s dissonance and electric currents sweep on a wave of exacting precision.

Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux_ – Tschaikovsky/Balanchine – Set to music originally composed for Swan Lake, this virtuosic ballet is brief, beautiful, and beloved—an adrenaline rush for dancers and audiences alike.

The Magic Flute  – Drigo/Martins – A comedic tale for audiences of all ages set to a score by Riccardo Drigo, The Magic Flute returns with new scenery recreated by David Mitchell. Last performed in 1983, this charming work tells the story of a young girl who loves a poor but proud boy, yet is forced by her crafty parents to wed a rich older man.

Chaconne – Gluck/Balanchine – Chaconne is by turns elegiac and courtly, beginning with a dreamlike prologue and concluding with a grand series of classical dances.
