Balanchine described this work as “Everything I know about ballet in 13 minutes.” It is a joyful piece that challenges the dancers’ technical prowess at every level.
Considered by many to be Tudor’s greatest work, this psychological ballet set to Mahler’s “Kindertotenlieder” expresses raw emotions taking us from tenderness to devastation to rage.
This beautiful, incredibly emotional pas de deux challenges the physicality as well as the dynamic give-and-take of true partnering, both as it is demonstrated in life and onstage.
DRINK TO ME ONLY WITH THINE EYES
"The freshness of the inspiration, the consistent upturning of artistic convention, the sheer bravado of it all, is unprecedented, joyful and so volatile you fear it will evaporate before your eyes."
— The San Francisco Examiner
