NY City Ballet - Here/Now Festival No. 1: Wheeldon

Lincoln Center - David H. Koch Theatre

Sat, Apr 29 @ 8:00 PM

From a breakthrough contemporary work, Polyphonia, to his most recent creation, American Rhapsody, we salute Christopher Wheeldon in our second ever program dedicated exclusively to his NYCB roots.

Program:

Mercurial Manoeuvres

Music by: Dmitri Shostakovich
Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

Mercurial Manoeuvres accents the wit in Shostakovich’s concerto, pairing dramatic movements with the peaks and valleys of the composer’s dynamic music.


Polyphonia

Music by: György Ligeti
Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

Regarded as one of Wheeldon's breakthrough contemporary works, Polyphonia's four couples wind their way through ten eerily melodious Ligeti selections.



Liturgy

Music by: Arvo Pärt
Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

This contemplative pas de deux has a hushed, mystical quality as two dancers separate and return to one another with ever increasing intensity before disappearing into the darkness together.



American Rhapsody

Music by: George Gershwin
Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

Tony Award-winner (An American in Paris) and former NYCB Resident Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon draws upon his recent Broadway success in his latest NYCB creation, set to Gershwin’s popular Rhapsody in Blue.
