Tribute to Balanchine - Lincoln Center At Home | Thespie

After George Balanchine’s death on April 30, 1983, the New York City Ballet honoured its founding genius in this tribute performance to the legendary choreographer, who co-founded NYCB in 1948 and created more than 120 works for his company. In this Live From Lincoln Center rebroadcast, the company presents three of these ballets: Vienna Waltzes to music by Johann Strauss II, Franz Lehar, and Richard Strauss; Mozartiana to music by Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky; and Who Cares?, to music by George Gershwin as adapted and orchestrated by Hershy Kay.
