A unique and intimate look at New York City Ballet with Principal Dancer Adrian Danchig-Waring, who hosts an informal evening of excerpts from the Company’s world-renowned repertory. New York City Ballet presents a special one-night-only program honoring the 90th anniversary of Guild Hall. NYCB On and Off Stage features excerpts from treasured works by NYCB Founding Choreographers George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins such as Jewels, The Four Temperaments, Dances at a Gathering, Fancy Free, and more performed by the sublime dancers and musicians of NYCB. Focusing on the power of human connection, this unique presentation illuminates the themes of isolation and intimacy found in these ballet masterpieces and draws us closer together in the process.
