Choreography by Twyla Tharp
Music by Johannes Brahms

An ABT commission for the Company's 60th Anniversary in 2000, The Brahms-Haydn Variations bursts with invention as Tharp explores Brahms' shimmering score, while brilliantly reaching a new peak of the choreographer's opus for large-cast classical ballets.

Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
Music by Dmitri Shostakovich

This brilliant, quicksilver romp dashes by with spinning leaps, gravity-defying jumps and whip-fast turns at an almost comically impossible speed, but its heart is a dreamy, moving double pas de deux that is simply delectable.

Choreography by Paul Taylor
Music by The Andrews Sisters

In the shadow of the Second World War, this modern classic brings 1940s American life center stage as young lovers lindy, jitterbug and polka to the ebullient songs of The Andrews Sisters, including "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "Tico-Tico" and "Bei Mir Bist du Schön."


Choreography by Frederick Ashton
Music by Erik Satie

Pure poetry, these haunting yet elegant pas de trois achieve an eerie otherworldliness of understated intensity, as Ashton reaches the summit of adagio classicism.


Choreography by George Balanchine
Music by Mikhail Glinka

Deceptively simple but fiendishly difficult, this Balanchine jewel charms with windswept dancing in perpetual motion, perfectly attuned to the joyfulness of Glinka's waltz rhythms.

Choreography by Kurt Jooss
Music by F. A. Cohen

Considered the most powerful antiwar statement ever devised for dance, this indisputable masterpiece opens at a diplomatic conference around a table covered with regulation green cloth, followed by vivid tableaux of the futility of war.

Choreography by Michel Fokine
Music by Carl Maria von Weber

The fragrant scent of a rose and the memories of a young girl's first ball inspire her dreams in Fokine's haunting Le Spectre de le Rose. Its soaring leaps are legendary, and its tale of first love's awakening is timeless.
