Spring 2019 Season at NYCB

This month marks the beginning of the New York City Ballet's Spring Season--the final performances before Summer's break and the 2019-2020 Season. Opening Tuesday, April 23, this year's Spring calendar will span six weeks through Sunday, June 2 with some terrific programming. 

The calendar will start with a week of contemporary repertory including such works as Justin Peck's (NYCB's Resident Choreographer) Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes, which pairs a lone woman with a cast of 15 energetic male dancers, and Alexei Ratmansky's Pictures at an Exhibition, which combines watercolor backdrops with ten dancers. The Season carries on with interesting shows like Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, a vampy ballet with showbiz glam, or The Times Are Racing, a sneaker ballet.

Closing out the calendar are seven performances of Balanchine's full-length A Midsummer Night's Dream from Tuesday, May 28 through Sunday, June 2. Overall, the Season will include a total of 15 works by Balanchine, three works by Jerome Robbins, and two special 50th anniversary performances of Dances at a Gathering (May 21 and 22), the landmark work that marked Robbins' return to NYCB.

Additionally, for families with young children, join the NYCB for its Family Saturdays event on Saturday, May 25. For families with children age 5 and older, this event teaches audiences about the history of the Company's choreography and some iconic dances moves too! Tickets start at $22

All performances take place at the David H. Koch Theater, located at West 63rd Street and Columbus Avenue. Click here to see a Season overview
