Description

ABOUT PERFORMANCE

The production offers two choreographies, which were originally created for the New York City Ballet and draw attention to the exceptional connection between dance and music thanks to Balanchin's famous ingenious musicality. We will present this production in a completely original costume and stage design.

Brahms–Schoenberg Quartet

The title is Balanchin's first abstract work created in 1966. It is a one-act ballet for fifty-five dancers, which with its Hungarian spirit, drive and energy brings a truly holistic experience culminating in an intoxicating finale.

Who Cares?

Ballet Who Cares? to the music of George Gershwin is one of Balanchin's most famous and also the most joyful works. Who Cares? is both the name of Balanchin's ballet and an old song written by George and Ira Gershwin in 1931 for the ballet Of Thee I Sing. It is said about Who Cares? that it retains the typical freshness of an eternal martini – dry, sincere, refreshing, tailor-made, with a slight hint of lemon. This brisk and bold ballet evokes the living spirit of Fred Astair, Ginger Rogers and the 1930s. It expresses a temperament that is very American and full of distinctive energy.
Robert Sealy of Ballet Review says, “Who Cares? is amazing. Never in a theatre have I wanted so much to jump the orchestra pit and join in. It is pure, unmitigated, uncut joy.”
