New York, NY (NYCB Gala featuring GlassPieces)
For info and tickets here
This October, New York City Ballet’s 2023 Fall Gala will celebrate a significant milestone in the Company’s history as we mark our 75th Anniversary with a program that will honor our Co-Founding choreographers George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, fashion, and New York City.
The Gala program will feature Robbins’ Glass Pieces and excerpts from Balanchine’s Who Cares? – works that reflect each choreographer’s take on the energy and vitality of New York City. Expansive in scope and streamlined in style, Robbins’ Glass Pieces captures the pulsating heartbeat of metropolitan life set to Philip Glass’ monumental score. The Balanchine favorite Who Cares? is set to a series of George Gershwin’s classic songs, and for the one-time-only gala evening special guest artists will share the stage with NYCB’s dancers to perform these iconic standards from the American Songbook. In keeping with the tradition of this beloved annual event, we will once again unite the artforms of ballet and fashion as Wes Gordon for Carolina Herrera will provide new costume designs for Who Cares?.
The celebration will begin at 5:30 PM with a cocktail reception followed by the performance at 7 PM, and will conclude with an elegant evening of dinner and dancing on the Theater’s Promenade. The 75th Anniversary Fall Gala is generously sponsored by Vacheron Constantin, with additional support from The Macallan.
