Winter at New York City Ballet introduces the premiere of Resident Choreographer Justin Peck’s first full-evening work, set to music by American composer Aaron Copland and created in collaboration with painter and sculptor Jeffrey Gibson. Firebird, a beloved masterpiece and enduring audience favorite, makes its return to the stage with its fantastical creatures and striking Stravinsky score. Jerome Robbins’ rarely-seen Rondo, a dance for two women, has its revival alongside his popular Fancy Free, the precursor to Broadway’s On the Town. On a program featuring contemporary dancemakers, A.I.M by Kyle Abraham dancer Keerati Jinakunwiphat creates her first piece for the Company, performed with Alexei Ratmansky’s 2020 premiere Voices. The winter engagement closes with a two-week run of one of the Company’s grandest productions, with a cast of over 100 dancers, The Sleeping Beauty.
