OCTOBER 12–13, 2024

Soft blue tutus…

a sweeping Tchaikovsky score. 

Next – a western saloon and

cowboy hats. 

George Balanchine’s iconic ballets – Serenade and Western Symphony -- look nothing alike, yet both demonstrate Balanchine’s ability to evoke powerful emotions. Finally, After the Rain Pas de Deux, created for New York City Ballet by Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon (MJ The Musical), honors the great master

WESTERN SYMPHONY

BY GEORGE BALANCHINE

SERENADE

BY GEORGE BALANCHINE

AFTER THE RAIN

BY CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON

WESTERN SYMPHONY

By George Balanchine

Orchestrated by Hershy Kay

Western Symphony is a rodeo of frisky fillies and lonesome cowpokes with a rousing, non-stop finale that brings the curtain down.

Western Symphony is a striking example of Balanchine’s fascination with American themes. Set on a rugged Old West street populated by cowboys and dance hall girls, the ballet nevertheless is very much a classical work.

SERENADE

By George Balanchine

Music by Tchaikovsky

A ROMANTIC WORK OF IMMENSE SWEEP, SET TO A TRANSCENDENT TSCHAIKOVSKY SCORE.

Serenade is a milestone in the history of dance. It is the first original ballet George Balanchine created in America, and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Balanchine began the ballet as a lesson in stage technique and worked unexpected rehearsal events into the choreography.

CAROUSEL (A DANCE)

By Christopher Wheeldon

Music by Richard Rodgers

With the Springfield Symphony Orchestra

 

This charming distillation of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic Carousel recalls the poignant romance and thrilling drama of the celebrated Broadway production. 

Many award-winning choreographers have created ballets for both the Broadway stage and for ballet companies to perform on their own. Don't miss this opportunity to see Saint Louis Ballet celebrate the "essence" of  American musical theatre with these remarkable ballets that project the style, energy and rhythms of the Broadway stage.  With accompaniment by full orchestra – the Springfield Symphony Orchestra for the third consecutive year.

INTERPLAY

By Jerome Robbins

Music by Morton Gould

 

Interplay’s young dancers take part in lighthearted competition as they revel in the exuberant yet cool melodies of the ballet’s jazz-infused score.
 

Using the interplay of classical and vernacular choreography, Robbins experimented with choreographic patterns and the interactions of dancers in various formations. Morton Gould's score is full of humor and jazzy orchestration and revels in the swingtime rhythms of the 1940s.

WHO CARES?

By Geoge Balanchine

Music by George Gershwin,

Orchestration by Hershy Kay

Gershwin’s radiant melodies serve as the basis for syncopated group dances and balmy, romantic duets.

 Balanchine choreographed Who Cares? to 16 songs Gershwin composed between 1924 and 1931. Balanchine used the songs not to evoke a particular era but as a basis for a dynamic that is uniquely American and, more specifically, evocative of New York City: Balanchine’s choreography brings out the exuberance of city life.
