Thrill of Contact features works by Balanchine, Robbins, Forsythe, and a world premier by Boston Ballet Principal Dancer Jeffrey Cirio.
George Balanchine - Theme and Variations
Music by P.I. Tchaikovsky
Considered a crown jewel of Balanchine’s career, this ballet is a glittering work set to an expressive and grand Tchaikovsky score.
Jerome Robbins - The Concert
Music by Frédéric Chopin
Robbins' comic parody of a classical music concert is a light-hearted ballet about the complexities of relationships and what it means to be human.
William Forsythe - The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude
Music by Franz Schubert
Set to the final movement of Schubert's Symphony No. 9, this magnificent display of classical technique celebrates physical mastery and precision.
Jeffrey Cirio - fremd (World Premiere)
Music/soundscapes from Frédéric Chopin, John Field, Olaf Bender, and Aphex Twin
fremd - meaning alien or strange - is Principal Dancer Jeffrey Cirio's first main stage work, set to music by Chopin, John Field, Byetone, and Aphex Twin. His vision is "to reach outside the box with no inhibitions."
