I recently saw a performance of Balanchine's Duo Concertant (staged for Ballet Arizona by Sean Lavery), and have been wondering about it ever since. What a lovely ballet, rich and rewarding! I see that NYCB intends to present it several times during the season, however to my knowledge it has only infrequently been performed (I could be quite wrong about this).

I would like to hear more about Duo Concertant - from people who may have seen it danced in the past, at City Ballet or elsewhere.

Sonora, I bumped something I had written in Ballet Talker's Reviews up to the top of that forum.

Miami City Ballet is doing Duo Concertante on their mixed bill program at Kennedy Center in May (Les Patineurs, Duo, Sylvia pdd, Slaughter on 10th Avenue)....I am looking forward to it, as I will have to miss their Jewels that weekend.

I'd be interested to hear your impressions of their Duo.
