21st Century Choreographers at The New York City Ballet
The New York City Ballet
New Debussy/Brandstrup – World Premiere
"City Ballet is the world’s foremost home of 21st-century choreography" (The New York Times), and these five new works are the latest additions to an already prolific repertory. The four world premieres from our fall gala will be joined on the stage by a new ballet from Kim Brandstrup. Having established himself as an award-winning choreographer working extensively in Europe, Brandstrup's first-ever work for an American dance company will be set to Claude Debussy's Jeux, the French composer’s last orchestral work, which was originally commissioned by Serge Diaghilev for the Ballet Russes.
