The programs for NYCB's 2008 visit to the Kennedy Center have been posted:

Program 1 -- (Wed, 2/27; Thu, 2/28; Sat, 3/1 eve; Sun, 3/2 mat)
--Serenade (Balanchine/Tchaikovsky)
--Moves (Robbins/Unaccompanied)
--Symphony in C (Balanchine/Bizet)

Program 2 -- (Fri, 2/29; Sat, 3/1 mat; Sun, 3/2 eve)
--Carousel (A Dance) (Wheeldon/Rodgers)
--Zakouski (Martins/Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky)
--Agon (Balanchine/Stravinsky)
--The Concert (or the Perils of Everybody) (Robbins/Chopin)


It doesn't seem to be the most ambitious program. And for one billed to be a celebration of Jerome Robbins, there's only 2 of Robbins Ballets. The engagement comes right before the London tour and the ballets are the same as those being performed in England, but there's less of them. The London programs are below. It seems a shame NYCB couldn't perform Four Seasons in DC, as well.

Programme 1 - Essential Balanchine
Symphony in C

Programme 2 - Jerome Robbins: An American Icon
The Four Seasons
The Concert

Programme 3 - Four Voices: Wheeldon, Martins, Bigonzetti, Ratmansky
Christopher Wheeldon: Carousel (A Dance)
Peter Martins: Zakouski
A ballet by Mauro Bigonzetti
Alexei Ratmansky: Russian Seasons

Programme 4 - Ballet and Broadway: A Musical Celebration
Peter Martins: Thou Swell
George Balanchine: Tarantella
George Balanchine: Western Symphony
Jerome Robbins: West Side Story Suite
