“[Raymonda Variations] is certainly one of those ballets that best shows precisely what ballet is about. It is nothing but dancing, but dancing of such indescribable happiness, of such neat aptness, of such simple deftness.” – New York Times
NBT’s mid-winter triple bill begins with Yuri Possokhov’s Firebird, the striking, animated tale of young Prince Ivan, his two loves and the sorcerer whose evil spell must be undone. George Balanchine’s pretty-in-pink Raymonda Variations follows, with its indisputable charm and dazzling movement. Finally, NBT is honored to present a World Premiere ballet by renowned choreographer Nicolo Fonte.
