A moonlit night. A flock of birds. An African sunrise. Nature will be the foundation of Night and Day: A Collection of Short Ballets. George Balanchine's iconic and classical Serenade takes on the glow of a dance done by moonlight, while Edwaard Liang's Murmuration finds its roots in the breathtaking twilight flight patterns of starling birds. Lambarena, choreographed by Val Caniparoli, uniquely marries the high energy of West African dance with Bach on a sun-soaked stage.
