Three ballets by the genius choreographer, George Balanchine, including a work never before performed by Ballet Arizona. Ib Andersen is one of a handful of artists worldwide authorized by The Balanchine Trust to stage Balanchine’s masterpieces.
Symphony in Three Movements – A work that Ballet Arizona will perform for the first time. This ballet is a large ensemble work that references the jazz influences of the Igor Stravinsky composition.
Apollo – The ballet that Balanchine considered his artistic coming of age. The famed story from Greek mythology in which Apollo, the god of music, is visited and instructed by three Muses.
Walpurgisnacht – Fills the stages with feminine charm and intoxicating beauty. Taken from the last act of Faust, it depicts the May Day Eve celebration with colorful costumes and flowing hair.
