Highlighting innovation and artistry, this season’s Modern Masters series showcases choreographers that have challenged the bounds of the art form through big ideas and intriguing collaborations. The Ben Folds Project: Concerto makes its triumphant homecoming after Nashville Ballet’s critically acclaimed Kennedy Center debut in 2017. George Balanchine’s Duo Concertant delivers a rare look at the breadth of the father of American ballet’s magnificent repertory, while The Lottery keeps audiences and dancers both on edge with the promise of a thrilling climax—the ballet’s final soloist will be selected by a real lottery live on stage. Inspired by the beauty of Eastern rituals, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Bloom rounds out the program.
