New York City Ballet Spring Season Opens 4/30

New York City Ballet's 2013 Spring Season will open with a three-week American Music Festival featuring 25 ballets and music by 17 American composers. This festival will also mark the 25th anniversary of the 1998 American Music Festival, during which NYCB presented more than 20 new works to the music of American composers.

The season will open on Tuesday, April 30 with an All Balanchine program consisting of Who Cares? (music by George Gershwin, adapted and orchestrated by Hershy Kay), Ivesiana (music by Charles Ives), Tarantella (music by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, reconstructed and orchestrated by Hershy Kay), and Stars and Stripes (music by John Philip Sousa, adapted and orchestrated by Hershy Kay).

Who Cares? will be presented in a new production featuring new costumes created by the Tony Award-winning designer Santo Loquasto, who has created sets and costumes for more than 60 Broadway shows, and numerous other stage, dance, and film productions. Loquasto has also been the production designer for more than 20 films by Woody Allen and has been nominated for Academy Awards for his work on Bullets Over Broadway, Radio Days, and Zelig.
