New York City Ballet’s Spring 2018 21st Century Choreographers program includes ballets by Peter Walker, Alexei Ratmansky and Justin Peck from April 28 – May 23, 2018.
21st Century Choreographers Ballets
Corps de Ballet member Peter Walker set his second work for New York City Ballet to music by Oliver Davis. It premiered in New York City Ballet’s Winter 2018 New Combinations program.
Pictures at an Exhibition
Alexei Ratmansky, former director of the Bolshoi Ballet and currently artist in residence at American Ballet Theatre, choreographed this piece for ten dancers to the famous music by Modest Mussorgsky in 2014.
Ratmansky described the ballet as a tribute to a dying friend with each picture representing a different part of the friend’s life.
The set uses projections based on Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky’s Color Study Squares with Concentric Circles, 1913.
French couture fashion designer Adeline Andre did the costumes.
Year of the Rabbit
Peck’s second piece for NYCB is based on Peck’s Tales of a Chinese Zodiac (2010). It premiered in Fall 2012 to music by Sufjan Stevens, orchestrated by Michael P. Atkinson.
