Direct from the other cultural capital of the world, the New York City Ballet is setting up shop at the beautiful Théâtre du Châtelet this summer under the banner of the annual festival, Les Etés de la Danse. The jam-packed schedule features 20 ballets, over half of which are by its celebrated choreographer and co-founder (and former star of the Parisian ballet scene), George Balanchine. The remaining ballets highlight the hottest names in choreography today, including Alexei Ratmansky, Christopher Wheeldon, and Justin Peck, the company’s current resident choreographer. Add in the company’s world-renowned roster of dancers, and you end up with a virtual who’s who of 21st-century American ballet.
