Savour a show of 3 ballets by three of the top choreographers from across the world. Featuring two Tony Award-winning choreographers and an upcoming star in the world of ballet, an evening of entertainment and breathtaking performance awaits you!
Why Watch New Combinations
Featuring works by up and coming choreography stars, New Combinations attempts to expose the dearth of new talent to the world. Justin Peck is the current Resident Choreographer of the New York City Ballet and a Tony Award winner for his work in Broadway. Hailed as one of the foremost choreographers of ballet in the United States of America, Peck has won numerous accolades from across the world.
Christopher Wheeldon is a British choreographer and Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet. His most famous works include Electric Counterpoint, DGV: Danse a grande vitesse, Aeternum, Strapless, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He is a regular choreographer for some of the leading ballet companies in the world, including the Dutch National Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Boston Ballet, and the San Francisco Ballet. Also a Tony Award winner, he is the President of the Benesh Institute.
Alexei Ratmansky is a Russian American choreographer who has been a resident artist at the American Ballet Theatre since 2014. A former director of the renowned Bolshoi Ballet, he is famous for reviving classical ballets in some of the biggest stages across the world. Having worked with the Royal Danish Ballet, St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky Ballet and the San Francisco Ballet, his confluence of modern styles with traditional ballets is what sets him apart from his contemporaries.
The first ballet is from Justin Peck and aptly titled Bright. It is led by three couples in pretty costumes and involves a series of lifts and lyricism. Mark Dancigers music is textured and fantastical, and one gets the sensation that they could almost touch the music.
The second performance is Christopher Wheeldon’s breakthrough ballet, Polyphonia. Eight dancers, consisting of 4 couples, take the stage and they perform through the melodious Ligeti selections. Wheeldon takes a significant amount of inspiration from George Balanchine but still manages to keep it unique to his style. The command of space and scale of movement are unmatched, and it is easy to see that this ballet is one that showcases the talents of the dancers.
The final ballet is from Alexei Ratmansky. A new work from the Russian-born choreographer, it is his first work for the NYCB since 2017 and is all set to dazzle audiences with Ratmansky’s twist on the classics.
