Theme & Variations Choreography/Music: Balanchine/Tschaikovsky

In Theme and Variations, Balanchine pays homage to the Imperial Russian Ballet of his youth in one of his most technically demanding works. This plotless ballet features glittering costumes and inventive choreography that is credited with bringing classical ballet into the 20th century. World Premiere Choreographer in Residence Matthew Neenan creates his 12th new work especially for the Company in his own unique contemporary style.

Rodeo Choreography/Music: de Mille/Copland

The allure of the cowboy is the focus of de Mille’s Rodeo, which captures the pioneering spirit of the American character and the exuberance of youth. A defining achievement in de Mille’s early choreographic career, Rodeo is an optimistic tale of a tomboy’s attempt to lasso in love, with Copland’s exuberant score setting the scene.
