New York City Ballet Announces Weeks Three and Four of Their Digital Season

On Tuesday, October 13, at 8pm EDT, NYCB will release the fourth program consisting of George Balanchine's Duo Concertant, a duet accompanied by an onstage violinist and pianist, along with excerpts from Jerome Robbins' Dances at a Gathering and Balanchine's Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet and Symphony in C.

The fifth program, which premieres on Tuesday, October 20, at 8pm EDT, will feature excerpts from the following ballets: Everywhere We Go, Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes, and Year of the Rabbit by NYCB Resident Choreographer and Artistic Advisor Justin Peck; Pictures at an Exhibition and Russian Seasons by choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, and Mercurial Manoeuvres and Polyphonia by former NYCB Resident Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon.

On Saturday, October 24, at 2pm EDT, NYCB will release its second and last family-friendly matinee program of the season, which includes the opening of Robbins' Fanfare, in which dancers embody the instruments of the orchestra; Balanchine's The Steadfast Tin Soldier, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen story; and two excerpts from Balanchine's magical A Midsummer Night's Dream: the "donkey pas de deux" danced by Queen of the Fairies Titania and her enchanted suitor, and a brilliant solo for Oberon, King of the Fairies, with the butterflies and fairies of his kingdom, performed by students of the School of American Ballet.
