Program Notes

SPAC’s New York City Ballet Gala, the finale to NYCB’s 2020 residency, will draw inspiration from jazz with Robbins’ In G Major incorporating the playful jazz accents of Ravel’s Concerto in G and scenery and costumes by Erté; Balanchine’s The Man I Love Pas de Deux from the ballet Who Cares? set to music by Gershwin; and Balanchine’s Rubies, featuring Stravinsky’s jazz-inflected Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra.
