For his newest work, Resident Choreographer Justin Peck will create a dance to a commissioned score by acclaimed American composer Nico Muhly. Preceding Peck’s world premiere is Jerome Robbins’ buoyantly charming In G Major, featuring scenery and costumes by the Art Deco artist Erté. Completing the program is Christopher Wheeldon’s DGV: Danse à Grande Vitesse, a fleet and intricate dance for a cast of more than 25 performed to a minimalist score by Michael Nyman, composed in honor of a new addition to the high-speed French train service known as the TGV.

Set to a supercharged, minimalist score, DGV: Danse à Grande Vitesse propels 26 dancers in sleek costumes through surging, relentless movement in front of a structural metallic background.

Meet the Dancer
Experience ballet from the other side of the footlights. A NYCB dancer will immerse your group in the life of a Company member during this 45-minute discussion and backstage tour, sharing insights into the life of a dancer and providing background for the performance your group is attending. You’ll hear interesting moments from the history of both NYCB and our home, the David H. Koch Theater, and have the opportunity to experience the breathtaking view of the auditorium from onstage. Participants must be at least 10 years old.
