FREE DRESS REHEARSALS: DOUBLE FEATURE
JANUARY 30 & 31
With wonderful support from CIT and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, NYCB is pleased to invite you to learn more about the Company, or perhaps discover New York City Ballet for the first time, by attending one or both of two free dress rehearsals of Double Feature on Wednesday, January 30 and Thursday, January 31 at the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center (63rd St. & Broadway). Double Feature is the first full-length ballet by Broadway phenomenon and five-time Tony Award-winner Susan Stroman. Created in 2004, the ballet is a hilarious homage to the silent movie era set to the grand music of Irving Berlin and Walter Donaldson. Ms. Stroman will be conducting both rehearsals, which are open to the general public. It is a rare opportunity to witness an artist rehearsing and coaching a work of their own making. The rehearsals will feature sets by Broadway great Robin Wagner and costumes by the acclaimed William Ivey Long, and the full NYCB Orchestra.
Act I "The Blue Necklace" can be seen on Wednesday, January 30.
Doors open at 1 pm. Rehearsal begins at 1:15 pm and concludes at 2:30 pm.
Act II "Makin' Whoopee!" can be seen on Thursday, January 31.
Doors open at 1:15 pm. Rehearsal begins at 1:30 pm and concludes at 2:45 pm.
