Balanchine turned up the volume on classical ballet, making the movement bigger, faster, and more energetic, and New York City Ballet alums Benjamin Millepied and Justin Peck have put their own stamp on this aesthetic. Balanchine’s moonlit Serenade is followed by Millepied’s propulsive and expanded The Chairman Dances—Quartet For Two, and Peck’s Rodeo, an athletic, high-energy interpretation of Aaron Copland’s iconic music.
