Recommended Posts

This summer, Lincoln Center's schedule is full of exhilarating dance programs including the biggest names in modern dance!

July 12, 14-15, 9:00pm

Emanuel Gat Dance

Winter Voyage/ The Rite of Spring

Fusing Cuban salsa with Stravinsky (with nods to Nijinsky), Emanuel Gat, the evocative Israeli choreographer, presents The Rite of Spring, a burning, surprising, and savage fertility ritual. Completing the program is Winter Voyage, a duet set to three selections from Winterreisse, Schubert’s anguished song cycle. This is a work that takes a poignant look at seduction and disappointment, desire and loss.
