Choreography by George Balanchine
Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
A World Premiere by Ma Cong
Mozartiana is George Balanchine’s final masterpiece that many believe was done as a farewell to his beloved ballerina Suzanne Farrell. Comprised of a series of elegant dances, Mozartiana is set to Tchaikovsky’s moving musical tribute to Mozart. The ballet’s beautiful steps – both purely classical and, yet, unmistakably crafted by Balanchine – intertwine to form a profound work that is one of the legendary choreographer’s best.
Closing the season is a world premiere by Associate Artistic Director Ma Cong. Cong’s captivating works are celebrated for their musicality and humanity, creating remarkable experiences that stay with audiences long after leaving the theatre. This ballet, his tenth for Richmond Ballet, is sure to follow form.
