PROGRAM NOTES
Indianapolis Ballet is proud to work with The George Balanchine Trust to bring three of his most iconic ballets to life on stage at The Toby at Newfields. The following program notes for the three ballets (to be performed in listing order during the residency performances) are taken from the official website of The George Balanchine Trust; for more details on these ballets, visit www.Balanchine.com.


Serenade is a milestone in the history of dance. It is the first original ballet Balanchine created in America and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. After its initial presentation in 1934, Serenade was reworked several times. In its present form there are four movements — “Sonatina,” “Waltz,” “Russian Dance,” and “Elegy.” Click here for the full program notes for Serenade


Balanchine choreographed The Four Temperaments for the opening program of Ballet Society, the forerunner of New York City Ballet. It is one of his earliest experimental works, fusing classical steps with a lean and angular style. The ballet is inspired by the medieval belief that human beings are made up of four different humors that determine a person’s temperament. Each temperament was associated with one of the four classical elements (earth, air, water, and fire), which in turn were the basis of the four humors (black bile, blood, phlegm, and bile) that composed the body.

Throughout his life, Balanchine was attracted to Alexander Glazounov’s music for Raymonda. He loved what he called the music’s “grand and generous manner, its joy and playfulness.” As a student in St. Petersburg, Balanchine danced in the Maryinsky Theater production that had originally been choreographed by Marius Petipa. After leaving Russia, Balanchine and the ballerina Alexandra Danilova mounted the full-length Raymonda for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in 1946. At New York City Ballet, Balanchine produced three works to portions of the Raymonda score: Pas de DixCortège Hongrois, and Raymonda Variations. The music in Pas de Dix and Cortège Hongrois was taken mostly from the last act of Raymonda. For Raymonda Variations, Balanchine drew on music from the first act.

    Indianapolis Ballet is establishing extraordinary ballet in the Circle City once again!

     

    After debuting with three residencies in early 2018, Indianapolis Ballet - the first full resident professional ballet company based in Indianapolis in over a decade - is excited to host its first full artistic season from August 2018 through April 2019. 

     

    IB's 2018/19 Season will include three residencies (Sept. 28-30, Feb. 15-17 & April 18-20) at The Toby at Newfields - the official Performance Residency Partner of Indianapolis Ballet - in addition to the return of Indiana's largest staging of The Nutcracker to the historic Murat Theatre at Old National Centre (Dec. 14-16) and the New Works Showcase Series at newly-opened The District Theatre on Mass Ave (Nov. 8-11).

     

    The professional company, which features 20 full-time dancers and 5 trainees, has been built on the solid foundation of the Indianapolis School of Ballet, now in its 13th year as Indiana's premier destination for dance instruction.
