About New York City Ballet

Explore two Kennedy Center premieres, created for the centennial of Jerome Robbins, include Justin Peck's Easy set to the music of Leonard Bernstein, and Tony®-winning choreographer/director Warren Carlyle’s SOMETHING TO DANCE ABOUT, featuring notable dance sequences from On the Town, West Side Story, and more. Also by Robbins, In the Night features three couples of distinct personality set to four of Chopin’s elegant nocturnes.
