New York City Ballet Season 2016/17  includes 77 ballets, 3 full-length classics, 8 world premieres. 

The Spring 2017 Here: Now Festival.  There Is Only Now.
—George Balanchine

The ballet – as the founder George Balanchine liked to say – only exists “right now.” While this powerful metaphor of art as a continuously unfolding present reminds us that dance is staged by living people before a live audience, it is also about the vibrant immediacy of dance and the joy that it affords.

To be swept up in the emotionally charged combination of motion giving shape to live music. And to allow ourselves to be wholly transported from our daily lives and the unrelenting buzz of constant distraction.

Whatever a dance was yesterday or will become tomorrow, the opportunity to experience what it is right now is fleeting. This makes it all the more imperative we seize the moment. Whether we come to see how the Company’s remarkable talent of today interprets our classics. Or when we go to the premiere of the innovative new works only now being created.
