“musagete” appears in greek mythology as a goddess supervising various arts such as dances, songs, poems, plays, etc. this work was presented to the new york city ballet by boris eifman celebrating choreographer george balanchine’s centennial. it holds choreographer’s respect for balanchine and his gratitude to balanchine’s contribution to the growth of russian ballet. through diverse arrangements from delicate pas de deux to corps de ballet as well as dramatic lighting contrasting black and white costumes, this work interprets balanchine’s artistic life and sends praise to his whole life.
