Robbins 100 at the New York City Ballet
Jerome Robbins was a giant of 20th-century theater and dance. An acclaimed dancer, director, producer, and choreographer, Robbins played key roles in such notable stage productions as Bells Are Ringing, Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy, The King and I, and High Button Shoes. For his contributions to the film version of The King and I, he won two Oscars, which made splendid companions for his five Tony Awards. In addition to his work on Broadway, he was also the co-founding choreographer of the New York City Ballet. Now, to celebrate the centennial of his birth, the NYCB will be paying tribute to this art and entertainment icon with Robbins 100, a series of shows running from May 3 to May 20 featuring the very best of Robbins’s work, both classical and Broadway. The NYCB will also be premiering original productions inspired by Robbins, meaning even the most devoted fans will have the opportunity to see something utterly new and guaranteed to delight.
