Concerto Barocco -
Music by Johann Sebastian Bach,
Choreography by George Balanchine.
The Concert (or, The Perils of Everybody) -
Music by Frederic Chopin,
Choreography by Jerome Robbins.
Concerto Barocco, set to Bach’s Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins is one of George Balanchine’s greatest ballets. Often described as music made visible, Balanchine’s brilliant, eloquent movement exquisitely personifies the virtuosic energy of the instruments themselves.
Jerome Robbins’ The Concert is a delightfully comic send-up of an all-Chopin recital where a cast of quirky attendees allow their minds to wander, revealing their imaginative secret fantasies. The laugh-out-loud antics of these eccentric characters make for a genuine crowd-pleaser while delivering remarkable insight into the imperfections of human relationships, and the foibles and insecurities within us all.
