The Ballet company was very good but the dances were only mediocre in general.The orchestra did not resonate, whether it was the conductor or the accoustics. Disappointed for sure.

Description

_Run time: 2 hours 11 minutes (including intermissions)*

*_*_

La Valse_*

In a dark and mysterious ballroom, thirty-four dancers waltz to gripping music by Ravel that projects a mood of impending doom. This dramatic work culminates with the appearance of a dark figure of Death, who claims the life of a woman in white as the horrified on-lookers swirl about her upraised body.

The Steadfast Tin Soldier

Based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, this is a sweet ballet about the innocent courtship between a tin soldier and a paper-doll ballerina. A poignant story of unrequited love.

Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux

A thrilling duet, Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux_ is set to unused music from Swan Lake_ that Balanchine acquired from the Bolshoi Theatre’s archives. Less than 10 minutes long, this tour de force ballet, performed around the world, is both challenging and enchanting. 

*_Symphonic Dances

*Following the one-night-only World Premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s commission in March 2012, _Symphonic Dances now enters our repertory for everyone to enjoy. This dramatic, fast-paced work, by one of the world’s most renowned and sought-after choreographers, is set to the powerful Sergei Rachmaninoff score of the same name.
