robbins

Below Is the program from last night.  We were in a fabulous spot Orchestra A6 & 8, and were joined by two short ladies on either side after intermission.

The first piece, Opus 19 was just the sort of Dance I like.

I could have done without Glass Pieces. Not only was the music monotonous but the dance didn’t make up for it.

 

ALL ROBBINS NO. 5

  • Opus 19/The Dreamer

    • Music by: Sergei Prokofiev
    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins
    • Principal Casting:
      MAY 18, 19 eve: Sterling Hyltin, Taylor Stanley* (*first time in role)

    Set to Prokofiev’s feverish concerto, Opus 19/The Dreamer follows a male protagonist on a journey to find his elusive and ethereal counterpart.

    The quintessential piano ballet, Dances at a Gathering distills the spectrum of human interaction into the most natural of movements, a landmark for its invention, virtuosity, and constantly shifting emotions.

  • Glass Pieces

    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins
    • Principal Casting:
      MAY 18, 19 eve: Ashley Hod, Daniel Applebaum, Sara Adams*, Andrew Scordato, Lydia Wellington, Cameron Dieck, Maria Kowroski, Russell Janzen (*first time in role)

    Expansive in scope and streamlined in style, Glass Pieces captures the pulsating heartbeat of metropolitan life with its charged, urban choreography, concluding in a finale that propels the corps de ballet across the stage at an electrifying pace.
