NBT’s 2024 triple bill will feature two renowned ballets plus an exciting World Premiere by the creative duo of A & A, Alexis Ochin and Arnaud Boursain.
Concerto Barocco, set to Bach’s Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins is one of George Balanchine’s greatest ballets. Often described as music made visible, Balanchine’s eloquent movement exquisitely personifies the virtuosic energy of the instruments themselves. About the ballet, the critic Clive Barnes wrote, “The three hallmarks of the American classic style are poetry, athleticism, and musicality, and these three graces are exquisitely exploited by Concerto Barocco.”
NBT is thrilled to present a dynamic World Premiere, Ghost Light (Ripples in the fabric of existence), by the creative duo of A & A, Alexis Ochin and Arnaud Boursain. Described as a poetic expression of the eternal dance between science and art, Ghost Light draws its inspiration from mankind’s ceaseless quest for understanding.
With artistic credits that span worldwide, A & A have performed, collaborated, and provided artistic direction for companies, productions, and television shows including Cirque du Soleil, One Night for One Drop and So You Think You Can Dance, as well as leading brands like Louis Vuitton, Samsung, and more. Las Vegas audiences may remember their work from the decade-long collaboration between NBT and Cirque du Soleil, A Choreographers’ Showcase. Enjoy the artistry of these two cutting-edge choreographers in this never-before-seen work for the company.
Rounding out the program is Jerome Robbins’ The Concert–a delightfully comic send-up of an all-Chopin recital where a cast of quirky attendees allow their minds to wander, revealing their imaginative secret fantasies. The laugh-out-loud antics of these eccentric characters make for a genuine crowd-pleaser while delivering remarkable insight into the imperfections of human relationships, and the foibles and insecurities within us all. Choreographer Jerome Robbins wrote: “One of the pleasures of attending a concert is the freedom to lose oneself in listening to the music. Quite often, unconsciously, mental pictures and images form, and the patterns and paths of these reveries are influenced by the music itself, or its program notes, or by the personal dreams, problems, and fantasies of the listener.”
