About the program
Highlighting work from a quartet of contemporary choreographers, this program features a new ballet from Pam Tanowitz, whose first dance for the Company premiered in the spring of 2019, along with Gianna Reisen’s Composer’s Holiday, first seen in 2017 (when Reisen was just 18, making her the youngest choreographer to create a work for the Company). Also on the bill are Christopher Wheeldon’s quietly mesmerizing pas de deux Liturgy and Justin Peck’s Belles-Lettres, set to a celebrated work of chamber music from César Franck.
