FEB. 14-16 @ the Long Center
Celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend by treating someone special to ballets by two of the world’s most-accomplished choreographers. From George Balanchine, the father of American ballet, we bring you Rubies, the red-hot centerpiece of his iconic ballet Jewels, full of spark, sass and neoclassical choreography that’s uniquely American. We’re pairing this iconic piece with a contemporary ballet by Tony Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon of Broadway and New York City Ballet fame. His Ghosts transports you to an ethereal place where lost souls look for love and showcases a softer, fluid style of dance that’s as haunting as the specters on stage performing it. These hopelessly romantic dance works will leave your restless heart longing for more!
CHOREOGRAPHY: George Balanchine, Christopher Wheeldon
