New York City Center

Eight of the World’s Greatest Ballet Companies 
Six Distinct Programs 
One Unprecedented Event

In 1948 George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein founded New York City Ballet at City Center. It was here that Balanchine continued to develop his definitive style, which remains at the pinnacle of modern ballet. Many of Balanchine’s iconic ballets from that time had premieres at our historic theater. The thirteen different pieces chosen for this unprecedented international tribute will be performed by eight of the world’s greatest ballet companies, accompanied by the New York City Ballet Orchestra.

Balanchine: The City Center Years will feature performances by American Ballet Theatre, The Joffrey Ballet, The Mariinsky Ballet, Miami City Ballet, New York City Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, The Royal Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet.

The six distinct performances are complemented by two special Studio 5 programs on October 25 and 29, and a special archival exhibition at City Center.

Balanchine: The City Center Years is part of New York City Center's 75th Anniversary Season.
