Had the good fortune to see New York City Ballet this week. They did a Jerome Robbins mixed bill, including his Glass Pieces, which is a wonder. NCYB dancer, choreographer and interim co-director dances and explains a bit of it.
The NY Times on when it was new,
“‘Glass Pieces,” with music by Philip Glass and choreography by Jerome Robbins, is unlike any work the New York City Ballet has ever had in its repertory. At its world premiere Thursday night in the State Theater, Mr. Robbins succeeded in taking ballet into a brave new world.”
