All Stars

Overview

George Balanchine’s dramatic Stravinsky Violin Concerto, remembers his friend Igor with dance set to music echoing his native Tbilisi. Jerome Robbins’ The Concert (or, the Perils of Everybody) is full-on comic genius as the dancers explore an audience’s fantasies at a Chopin piano recital – and more than a little social commentary. Christopher Wheeldon’s work, After the Rain, with three duets to music by Arvo Pärt is stark, simple, spiritual and – above all – sensual. This is the program where the stars come out. 

All performances take place at The Auditorium Theatre.

Performances will feature live orchestral accompaniment performed by the Chicago Sinfonietta.
