One of the world’s most acclaimed dance companies, the New York City Ballet has delighted audiences for 70 years. Now, as they open their spring 2018 season, the NYCB prepares to pay tribute to one of its founding choreographers, Jerome Robbins, in a series of performances that run from May 3rd through the 20th. In addition to his role as a choreographer, Robbins was also a renowned dancer, theater producer, and film director. He won five Tony Awards for his work on High Button Shoes and Fiddler on the Roof, among other illustrious musicals, as well as two Academy Awards for his contributions to the film adaptation of West Side Story. The NYCB’s three-week Robbins 100 extravaganza will feature both classical and Broadway dance performances showcasing the best of Robbins’s work, as well as never-before-seen (and Robbins inspired) productions by Justin Peck, the NYCB Resident Choreographer.

Location: Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
