NYCB Vol. 6 No. 3 - Donizetti Variations

Updated: Apr 3

“This is a dance ballet, pure and simple, to some pleasant music by Donizetti. It was originally produced as a part of “Salute to Italy,” a dance program at the New York City Ballet honoring the one-hundredth anniversary of the formation of the Italian state.” —George Balanchine in Balanchine’s New Complete Stories of the Great Ballets (affiliate link)
