About Variations on Raymonda

Great masterpieces of painting, sculpture, and architecture are restored to their original majesty by careful recreation or meticulous clearing of the layers with which time obscures their beauty.

This seldom happens with masterpieces of dance. American Contemporary Ballet presents a rare opportunity to see choreography from "Raymonda," a towering beauty of ballet's past. Until now, the original steps have been lost to history; but when ACB restores them in a contemporary setting, Raymonda’s timeless power becomes even more striking.

The program also includes excerpts from "Raymonda Variations," Balanchine's ballet to the same music. Balanchine danced in the original production of "Raymonda" as a student, and liked the music so much that he choreographed four ballets to it. ACB Artistic Director Lincoln Jones will reveal how this great ballet’s legacy influenced Balanchine with a side-by-side comparison of choreography in a talk accompanying the performance. Followed by artist reception with live music.
