George Balanchine’s ballet Serenade is considered one of the cornerstones of dance history. This visually poetic choreography was originally created for ballet students.
The ballet Serenade is based on Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for String Orchestra in C Major and was first performed in 1934 by students of the School of American Ballet at the Felix Warburg Manor outside New York City. It is Mr. Balanchine’s most frequently performed ballet, and is still licensed by schools and ballet companies around the world.
