Principal Dancer Marcelo Gomes discovers inspiration in Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence, the composer's glorious tribute to the gracious melodies and carefree brightness of Italian lyricism.
The work consists of four movements, the first of which was premiered by American Ballet Theatre as Aftereffect in 2013 at the David H. Koch Theater.
