About this event

Three incredible ballets in one ballet lover\'s program. RHAPSODY IN BLUE: City Ballet resident choreographer Geoffrey Gonzalez created his take on George Gershwin\'s Rhapsody in Blue for last season\'s online performances. And audiences raved about this new work. This season, the full Rhapsody in Blue experience premieres live on stage! DANSES CONCERTANTES: City Ballet adds a 20th George Balanchine ballet to the company\'s repertoire with the San Diego premiere of Danses Concertantes. In 1944, George Balanchine created this intoxicating ballet to Igor Stravinsky\'s score, featuring a series of witty pas de trois. LA BAYADERE - KINGDOM OF THE SHADES: Hailed as one of Marius Petipa\'s supreme masterpieces, La Bayadere premiered in 1877. The ballet was universally hailed as Petipa\'s supreme masterpiece, particularly The Kingdom of the Shades scene. That scene is now a famous ballet showpiece, capturing classical ballet at its finest.
