All Balanchine

May 2 through May 5, 2013
Symphony Hall

Three ballets by the genius choreographer, George Balanchine, showcase the pleasures of pure dance and movement and set the bar for a dynamic performance by the Ballet Arizona dancers. This production features some of Balanchine's greatest choreography including Serenade, Monumentum pro Gesualdo/Movements for the Piano and Orchestra, and The Four Temperaments.  
ALL BALANCHINE features The Phoenix Symphony, conducted by Timothy Russell and guest pianist William Wolfram who will perform on The Four Temperaments.
Performances of ALL BALANCHINE are May 2nd at 7:00 pm, May 3rd at 7:30 pm, May 4th at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm and May 5th at 1:00 pm at Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix. Tickets are on sale at or by calling 602-381-1096.    
George Balanchine and Ib Andersen
Ballet Arizona's Artistic Director Ib Andersen came to the attention of George Balanchine in the 1970s and subsequently invited Andersen to join The New York City Ballet in 1980.  During Andersen's first three months in New York, he learned 35 of Balanchine's ballets, demonstrating a remarkable affinity for the Balanchine style and technique.
Balanchine created several principal roles for Andersen and recognized him as one of his most talented protégés.  Since his time with Balanchine, Andersen has been appointed as a Balanchine Repetiteur, one of a handful of artists worldwide authorized by The Balanchine Trust to stage Balanchine's masterpieces.  
Ballet Arizona's annual All Balanchine production honors the celebration of Balanchine's creative genius and continuous influence not only to Ib Andersen and Ballet Arizona, but to the world of dance.  The significant connection between George Balanchine and Artistic Director Ib Andersen began early in Andersen's career and has strongly influenced Ballet Arizona as we have come to know it today.
2013 marks the 30th Anniversary of George Balanchine's death (1904 - 1983).  Ballet Arizona joins dance companies across the United States in a celebration of his genius, which will be particularly poignant this year.
