Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Tschaikovsky Suite No. 3 is a ballet made by New York City Ballet co-founder and founding choreographer George Balanchine to Tschaikovsky's Suite No. 3 for Orchestra in G major, Op. 55 (1884). The premiere took place on December 3rd, 1970, at the New York State Theater, Lincoln Center wth scenery and costumes by Nicolas Benois. Balanchine set the final movement of Tschaikovsky's third orchestra suite in 1947 for Ballet Theatre under the title Theme and Variations. He incorporated this choreography substantially unchanged into Tschaikovsky Suite No. 3 as the fourth - and final - movement, which is sometimes called Tema con variazioni, when he set the entire suit.show more
