This episode of City Ballet The Podcast is the first ever Hear the Dance recorded live from a recent Inside NYCB presentation hosted by Silas Farley on the uniquely fruitful collaboration between George Balanchine and Igor Stravinsky. Silas is joined on stage by Company members and musicians from the NYCB Orchestra for demonstrations of excerpts from the Stravinsky/Balanchine partnership, as well as conductor Clotilde Otranto and Kay Mazzo, Chairman of the Faculty School of American Ballet and a former NYCB principal dancer, to discuss the music and choreography of the two titans’ careers.
