Dream a Little Dream

Delve into our season finale, A Dancer’s Dream, with a look at our newest Pinterest board: "Inside A Dancer’s Dream. Director and designer Doug Fitch (who helped create our productions of Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre and Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen) has given us an exclusive peek at the inspiration boards that went into costuming the Ice Maiden, Columbine, The Moor, and Petrushka for The Fairy’s Kiss and Petrushka, two ballets by Stravinsky that make up our season finale in June that stars New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns. See how designers like Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Comme des Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Viktor & Rolf combine with artful origami and the looks of everyone from Mad Max to classical ballet to create this one-of-a-kind dream.

Mearns's Turn

Sara Mearns in Rehearsal

“I think if you are a true artist, passionate about your art form, who can’t imagine life without it, you are kissed with this curse of always trying to do your art form justice, create the beauty it deserves. It’s our job as performing artists to give the audience a taste of that passion — to let them fall into that world,” says New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns, who is featured in this month’s Playbill as we gear up for A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky  at the end of June. Learn how she’ll be transforming into an Ice Fairy and a marionette when she appears with Alan Gilbert and the Philharmonic.

Dreams Do Come True

Rehearsal

“It’s been a dream of mine to perform with an orchestra like that. Classical music for me, now, is equal to classical ballet. You can’t have one without the other.”— New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns talks with Classical TV about her collaboration with the Philharmonic on the upcoming multimedia production A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky.

We’ve enjoyed seeing Sara at the concerts she’s attended all season, but we can’t wait to welcome her as a guest performer. Stay tuned for more.
