New York City Ballet: Classic NYCB at David H. Koch Theater

This quintessential NYCB program couples audience favorites with something new for a satisfyingly varied experience. Two fall premieres return, situated between masterpieces by our founding choreographers: Mozartiana’s prayerful opening will touch your spirit and its theme and variations will delight, and the expansive yet streamlined Glass Pieces quickens the tempo, propelling its dancers across the stage at an electrifying pace.
