New York City Ballet, now under the direction of Peter Martins, is one of America's cultural gems, as well as one of the foremost dance companies in the world. Founded by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein in 1948, City Ballet changed the shape of classical ballet. George Balanchine infused classicism with his brand of speed and musicality. In essence, Balanchine invented a way to see the music through his choreography; his collaborations with composers like Igor Stravinsky are unparalleled and remain wholly modern. With an active repertory of more than 150 ballets, the company houses his work, along with many ballets by Jerome Robbins. New works are unveiled with regularity and the roster of nearly 100 dancers includes some of the world's finest. The company presents three major seasons at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.
