LOURDES LOPEZ / ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Featuring West Side Story Suite
February 14 - March 2, 2014

Our third program doubles up on the premieres, with two works new to the company's repertoire - George Balanchine's boldly modern Episodes, and the brilliantly theatrical West Side Story Suite.

MCB's own Sharks and Jets rumble, fall in love, dance and sing in Jerome Robbins' own ballet based on his Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. A tour-de-force performed worldwide, Balanchine's thrilling Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux completes this momentous program.
