Win A Pair of Tickets To The NYC Ballet Tomorrow

After The Rain

After The Rain

This summer’s NYC Ballet residency is drawing to a close at SPAC, with only a few performances left. On the bill for Thursday are:

Post continues below...

  • La Source, choreographed by George Balanchine to music excerpts from Léo Delibes’ La Source [Naila] and Sylvia, ou la Nymphe de Diane
  • After the Rain, choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, based on Arvo Pärt’s Tabula Rasa and Spiegel Im Spiegel
  • Stravinsky Violin Concerto, choreographed George Balanchine to Igor Stravinsky’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major

Thursday is also the first in series of what’s being billed as “Date Nights” at SPAC, featuring a romantic night of live, world-class dance or music, fine wine tastings, delicious meat samples from The Meat House and memories captured by Saratoga Photobooth.

And for all of you balletomanes, SPAC will honor three longtime principal dancers who recently retired, Yvonne Borree, Albert Evans and Philip Neal, just prior to the performance. The dancers, who have been a presence on SPAC’s summer stage for more than twenty years, will be recognized onstage by SPAC President Marcia White and Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins.

We’re got a pair of lawn tickets to Thursday’s show that we’re going to give away to a lucky Nippertown reader. To enter the drawing, just leave a comment below. Be to enter a working email (we won’t publish it), so we can notify you if you win. We’ll draw a name at random and announce the winner on Thursday morning. Congratulations, Mary Ellen!
