Tchaikovsky // Serenade for Strings in C Major (Balanchine Choreography)
Tchaikovsky is famous for ballet, yet his Serenade for Strings was not originally composed for dance. Its poignant themes inspired world-renowned choreographer George Balanchine to transform it into a ballet in 1934. Experience the musical and visual journey of this graceful score destined for dance under the direction of Heather Watts, one of the last to be promoted to principal dancer by Balanchine.
