Rhapsody, a mixed-repertory program, concludes the season May 16–June 9. Principal Dancer Paulo Arrais will present a world premiere titled ELA, Rhapsody in Blue, his first work choreographed for the Opera House stage. The work features 15 men and one central female dancer performing to George Gershwin’s sultry score. George Balanchine famously described his opulent Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 as a “contemporary tribute to [Marius] Petipa, ‘the father of classical ballet,’ and to Tchaikovsky, his greatest composer.
