Concerto Barocco is set to Concerto for Two Violins (Bach). It is a soaring example of George Balanchine’s clean, elegant, and musical aesthetic. In 1965, Balanchine generously gave Ballet West founder, Willam Christensen, this beautiful work to help get the fledgling company off the ground. After nearly 20 years since it was last seen on the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre stage, one of Balanchine’s greatest creations returns.
