City Ballet the Podcast is back with a new season of deep dives into the history and artistry of New York City Ballet. We begin by revisiting our very first See the Music episode to celebrate the premiere of the Digital Fall Season—and the All Balanchine program. NYCB’s Music Director Andrew Litton delves into the background of Bizet’s Symphony in C, a hidden treasure that, 80 years after its creation, found a new popularity with the help of George Balanchine. Litton also sits down with NYCB Orchestra’s principal oboist, Julia DeRosa, to discuss Symphony in C’s iconic oboe solo and the intricacies of playing an instrument that is integral to so many ballet scores.
