Balanchine, Ratmansky, Tharp

Warner Theatre

A program that combines three masters of dance from the 20th century to the present. George Balanchine is regarded as the foremost contemporary choreographer in the world. His works have become iconic in the ballet lexicon.  He believed, “Dance is a continuation. You cannot predict the signs of its evolution.” The two remaining choreographers represented in this program reflect that sentiment as their works provided a new vision for dance and they continue to propel dance into the future. Tharp is considered the high priestess of choreography and Ratmansky is regarded as one of the world’s most sought-after choreographers.
