Russian Suite: Ratmansky & Balanchine

Pennsylvania Ballet

240 S. Broad Street Philadelphia PA 19102
  • Thursday October 20th 2011 at 12:00am to Sunday October 23rd 2011 at 12:00am

Featuring the Pennsylvania Ballet Orchestra

Raymonda Variations
George Balanchine // Music by Alexander Glazunov
Jeu de Cartes [North American & Company Premiere]
Alexei Ratmansky // Music by Igor Stravinsky
Slaughter on Tenth Avenue
George Balanchine // Music by Richard Rodgers

Witness history as Alexei Ratmansky's bold Jeu de Cartes premieres in North America. This vigorous abstract work crafts a visual expression of Stravinsky's score of the same name. The French title translates to "The Card Game," which for Ratmansky, simply addresses the "gamble" of choreographing to Stravinsky's musical complexities.

Two diverse Balanchine treasures complete the program. Raymonda Variations is a grand lesson in classical technique, featuring a principal couple and corps. Slaughter on Tenth Avenue offers a sassy one-act parody of Broadway, Russian ballet, and the mob.
