Enter the realm of possibility

Enter the dream realm with three imaginative ballets by George Balanchine, Stephen Galloway, and Jiří Kylián.

Balanchine’s heavenly Chaconne is a work of pure ballet for 27 dancers that dreamily weaves together life, love, and transcendent movement.

Set to music by The Rolling Stones, creative powerhouse and movement director for the stars Stephen Galloway creates a fun house of choreography and couture with his much-anticipated world premiere DEVIL’S/eye.  

Be transported with Jiří Kylián’s masterpiece and fan-favorite Bella Figura. In Italian, “bella figura” has two meanings: “beautiful body” and “putting on a brave face.”  This other-worldly ballet highlights the expressive potential of the body and the resilience of the human spirit.
