Choreographer George Balanchine set the bar for his protégé Ib Andersen, who brings together three works for this All Balanchine program. Episodes, danced to a moody score by Webern, is largely resistant to fantasy but invokes a world of possibility—for us and for the dancers. The Arizona premiere of Walpurgisnacht fills the stage with feminine charm and intoxicating beauty. The finale of the program is Western Symphony, a joyous ballet based on traditional western songs.
