Choreographer Alexei Ratmansky joins Associate Artistic Director Wendy Whelan to discuss Voices, his new ballet for NYCB, which premieres at the company’s annual New Combinations evening on January 30, 2020. Ratmansky describes his early career as a dancer in Kiev and the importance of watching bootleg VHS recordings of dance in his early development as a choreographer. Listeners will also find out how he came to set a ballet to Peter Ablinger’s complex, avant-garde composition, Voices and Piano, a departure for him musically, and why he feels NYCB is the best place to address the unique challenges this music has presented.
