Event Description

New York Theatre Ballet will perform two works at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in the Doris Duke Theatre from August 3- 7, 2016. Jacob’s Pillow, a National Historic Landmark, National Medal of Arts recipient, and home to America’s longest-running dance festival, is located in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts at 358 George Carter Road in Becket. NYTB’s program opens with Song Before Spring choreographed by Zhong-Jing Fang (American Ballet Theatre, corps de ballet) and Steven Melendez (New York Theatre Ballet, principal dancer) to Philip Glass Piano Etudes played live by steel drum ensemble, NYU Steel. Jack Anderson recently wrote about Song Before Spring in London’s Dancing Times: “…This was not the gambol one might expect, but an emotional outburst that plunged young people into unruly and unpredictable passions…” and from Carla Escoda of the Huffington Post: “The evening closed with a tumultuous 48 minute account of Philip Glass’ etudes arranged for steel drums. The 12-member NYU Steel ensemble took no prisoners. neither did co-choreographers Steven Melendez, of New York Theatre Ballet and Zhong-Jing Fang of American Ballet Theatre.” Following Song Before Spring is Antony Tudor's 1937 masterpiece Dark Elegies, an eloquent, somber ballet danced to Gustav Mahler's song cycle "Kindertotenlieder." After seeing Dark Elegies performed by NYTB, Deborah Jowitt wrote in Dance Beat, “The NYTB dancers perform Dark Elegies scrupulously and sensitively. A great achievement.”

Performances: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:15pm, and Saturday and Sunday at 2:15pm. Tickets are $45 and $35, with $10 Youth tickets also available for every performance. Tickets go on sale to the public April 1; Jacob's Pillow Members can order as early as January 11. For more information on Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and to become a Member visit www.jacobspillow.org or call 413.243.0745
