A trio of electrifying works
Our final program of the season features a trio of high-energy ballets that create the perfect finale. Christopher Wheeldon’s DGV: Danse à Grand Vitesse is set to Michael Nyman’s MGV (Musique à Grande Vitesse), which was composed to commemorate the French train à grand vitesse, and conveys the sense of movement and momentum of the high-speed train. Internationally recognized choreographer Jorma Elo will present an all-new ballet for us, and the program will conclude with the company premiere Jerome Robbins’ Glass Pieces, set to the music of composer Philip Glass.
