Joyce Theater

The Sarasota Ballet returns to The Joyce Theater with a triple bill featuring two ballets by Sir Frederick Ashton and a world premiere by Jessica Lang. Under the Directorship of Iain Webb, The Sarasota Ballet has established itself as not only a company with a diverse and extensive repertoire, but also the main exponent of the choreography of Sir Frederick Ashton. 

The company presents Ashton’s 1956 pièce d’occasion Birthday Offering, originally choreographed in celebration of The Royal Ballet’s 25th anniversary, and the once-lost Ashton ballet, Varii Capricci, returning to New York for the first time since its 1983 world premiere.

Curtain Chat: Wed, Aug 17
