NYCB's new winter choreography

Recommended Posts

Today's links include a Times article on the forthcoming Winter Season. Three new ballets:

...On Jan. 22, Balanchine’s birthday, the ballet will present its annual New Combinations Evening and will also introduce the Rudolf Nureyev Fund for Emerging Choreographers. The fund, made possible through a matching grant of $500,000 from the Rudolf Nureyev Dance Foundation, will provide support for new choreography. The evening will also feature world-premiere ballets by the British choreographer Douglas Lee and the Russian choreographer Alexey Miroshnichenko. The season’s third world premiere will be by Melissa Barak, a former dancer with the company, and will be presented Feb. 17...

Alexei Miroshnichenko participated in 2005's NYCB Choreographic Institute, using music by the composer (Leonid Desyatnikov) later used by Alexei Ratmansky in Russian Seasons. You may see him (the only Russian, so easy to spot) in each of the site's three videos, especially an extensive exposure to his choreographic ideas and method of setting choreography in the middle clip, and a (promising) little look at his ballet (for the Institute) in the third:
