Ballets Russes

Explore the origins of Balanchine’s choreographic genius in this historic triple bill, reconstructing his most significant early works while living in France.

The Song of the Nightingale (Le Chant du Rossignol) is a tale of a mysterious songbird that cures an ailing Chinese emperor. What emerges is a parable about nature’s capacity to heal wounds, and the need for humanity to be led by beauty and light. Balanchine’s Apollo is as sparse and restrained as it is dramatic and powerful. His version follows the young god as he is ushered into adulthood by the muses of poetry, mime, and dance. Finally, Prodigal Son’s story of sin and redemption, taken from the Gospel of Luke, presents a universal message through an expressive score and provocative movement. .
