A much-anticipated highlight of this year’s Festival is the 50th anniversary presentation of George Balanchine’s 1967 masterpiece, Jewels, featuring the Bolshoi Ballet, New York City Ballet, and Paris Opera Ballet on a single stage.
In addition to Balanchine and Subotnick, there is the Japanese Paris-based choreographer Saburo Teshigawara, an extremely rare appearance by China’s superstar Gong Linna, Brazil’s larger-than-life musician/activist Carlinhos Brown, Poland’s musical archaeologist Maria Pomianowska, and a wide-ranging miniseries devoted to jazz radical and prime innovator Ornette Coleman—organized by his son, Denardo Coleman.
American electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick’s iconic early techno album Silver Apples of the Moon will be reimagined in a landmark live performance by the composer, alongside a world premiere entitled Crowds and Power.
