New York City Ballet has announced its performance schedule for 2014-2015:

Fall – The opening night is the Fall Gala, featuring world premieres by Liam Scarlett, Justin Peck, and Troy Schumacher. Later in the season will be the world premiere of a new piece by Alexei Ratmansky.

The 'regular' season begins the next night, with a performance of “Serenade," “Mozartiana, “Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux,” and “Tchaikovsky Suite No. 3.” Other programs include (but are not limited to) “Apollo,” “Monumentum”/”Movements”; “Duo Concertante,” “Agon;” “Donizetti Variations,” “La Sonnambula,” “Firebird;” “Chaccone,” “Interplay, 'Morgan;" “Everywhere We Go” (new Peck which premieres 4/8). The content of the Wendy Whelan farewell program on October 18 has not been announced.

Winter -- Highlights include the return of “The Goldberg Variations” and “Romeo + Juliet,” and another world premiere by Justin Peck, to music by Aaron Copland.

The season begins with “Serenade,” “Agon,” and “Symphony in C.” Other programs include (but are not limited to) “Symphonic Dances,” “The Cage,” “Andantino,” “Cortege Hongrois;” “La Valse;” “Concerto Barocco, “Square Dance;” "The Concert," “Harlequinade.”

Spring – Highlights include a new production of “La Sylphide” (not “Scotch Symphony” – “La Sylphide”), paired with “Bournonville Divertissements,” and a week of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

The season begins with "Monumentum"/"Movements," "Concerto Barocco," "Episodes," and "The Four Temperaments."
Other programs include (but are not limited to) “Symphony in Three Movements,” "Hallelujah Junction," "Mercurial Maneuvers," and “West Side Story Suite.”


The complete schedule for the full year is available on the NYCB website.


Comment -- When I wrote, in my review of the first two performances of the Spring 2014 Season, that I'd prefer that every season begin with "Serenade," I did not yet know the schedule for 2014-2015. Cheers for bringing back "The Goldberg Variations," and for the return of "Romeo + Juliet" and the casting opportunities it provides for both leads. And apparently it wasn't for nothing that Ashley Bouder danced an excerpt from "La Sylphide" at the recent YAGP gala.
