“Firebird is a crowd hit… filled with exuberance to match Stravinsky’s majestic score.” — San Francisco Gate
“Raymonda Variations is certainly one of those ballets that best shows precisely what ballet is about. It is nothing but dancing, but dancing of such indescribable happiness, of such neat aptness, of such simple deftness.” — New York Times
NBT’s mid-winter triple bill begins with Yuri Possokhovâ€™s Firebird, the striking, animated tale of young Prince Ivan, his two loves and the sorcerer whose evil spell must be undone. George Balanchine’s pretty-in-pink Raymonda Variations follows, with its indisputable charm and dazzling movement. Finally, NBT is honored to present a World Premiere ballet by renowned choreographer Nicolo Fonte.
Prior to both performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet, with special guests, multi-media presentations and more. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain.
