If coming from NJ, take NJ transit to NY Penn station (33rd st). Then just walk up one block on 7th Ave and jump on the #1 Subway (Van Cortland Ave/242 St) and it takes you straight to Lincoln Center (66th St) which was a 13 min ride. $2.75

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.

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.
