Rubies

Choreography by: George Balanchine

Composer: Igor Stravinsky

The second movement of Balanchine’s celebrated three-act ballet, Jewels, Rubies dazzles with its brilliant choreography, gorgeous costumes, and jazzy score.

Petite Mort

Choreography by: Jiří Kylián

Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

In Petite Mort, Czech choreographer Jiří Kylián juxtaposes pleasure and death. With movements from Mozart piano concertos, this stunningly audacious ballet starkly showcases twelve dancers who exude aggression, sensuality and vulnerability.

Five Poems

Choreography by: Ben Stevenson, O.B.E.

Composer: Richard Wagner

Inspired by drifting clouds at sunset, Ben Stevenson’s serene, neoclassical work, with scenery and costumes designed by actress Jane Seymour, features music based on poems by Wagner’s lover.
