George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue headlines this program with a hilarious parody of hijinks and high kicks, gangsters and cops in this ballet about a tap dancer and the impossible stripper he falls in love with. Balanchine’s sassy and spirited choreography and Richard Rodgers’ tantalizing Broadway score open the season full of laughter in a 1930s speakeasy.

Balanchine’s plotless masterpiece, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, bookends this program with Stravinsky’s timeless score setting the stage for all-out dancing and technique in its purest form. Balancing out the program is a tribute to the late Paul Taylor with his masterwork, Mercuric Tidings – a celebration of “body in motion” in this “exhilarating, blisteringly fast dance,” the Miami Herald acclaims.
