Serenade after Plato's Symposium

Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky  |  Music by Leonard Bernstein

This ballet is an abstract exploration of some of the themes that Plato investigated within his Symposium. In Plato's original text, a group of men convene and deliver speeches on the topic of love, with each man bringing a unique perspective to the proceedings. They explore how love can help the soul to understand truth in the pursuit of wisdom and beauty.

Daphnis and Chloe

Choreography by Benjamin Millepied  |  Music by Maurice Ravel

One of the seminal masterworks of French music, Ravel’s shimmering score paints a musical fresco for the pastoral tale of the young shepherd Daphnis’ love for the wood nymph, Chloe. In a wonderful suspension between abstraction and narrative, Benjamin Millepied’s ability to create ever-shifting patterns is on dazzling display with a balletic language echoing the frieze-like figures of a Greek vase, captivatingly complemented by a production design of color-infused geometric forms in perpetual movement. This is a unity of music, dance and art at its harmonious best.

Cast:
OCTOBER 25, 29: Abrera, Stearns, Trenary, Royal*, Cornejo*

OCTOBER 26, 28 EVE: Boylston, Whiteside*, Brandt, Hoven, Scott
