New York City Ballet All Robbins
Robbins started studying chemistry in college at the NYU but left the program after only a year due to financial problems and also in order to pursue a career in dance. He then enrolled in the New Dance League where he studied and learnt modern dance as well as ballet with the likes of Eugene Loring, Ella Daganova and Antony Tudor. He also learnt Spanish dancing with the famous Helen Veola; dance composition with the well-known Bessie Schonberg and folk dancing from Yeichi Nimura. His earliest projects with the NYCB came in 1951, just after he had created dance sequences to Hammerstein and Roger’s The King and I, following which he gained association with the Company and created The Cage.
Robbins died in 1998 leaving his mark behind as a great American director, theater producer and choreographer best recognized not only for Ballet and Broadway Theater, but also for his occasional directing/producing projects for films and television. His choreographic repertoire stretches all across classical ballet and contemporary musical theater, among which his most prominent stage productions include Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy: A Music Fable, West Side Story, Bells Are Ringing, The Pajama Game, The King and I, High Button Shoes, Peter Pan and On the Town.
He established his connections with NYCB in 1969, when he resumed his work there to work closely with Balanchine, after producing works for Broadway. Both Balanchine and Robbins worked alongside to create some of the most memorable performances such as their work in the Stravinsky Festival of 1972 in which the former worked with several noted choreographers including Robins who also worked with him in his repertory ballets. The two jointly choreographed as well as performed in the classic production of Pulcinella. Such works that will be seen in the celebratory “New York City Ballet: All Robbins” performance.
He recreated his own stage dances in 1956 film The King and I and won an Oscar award in the category of the Best Director alongside Robert Wise, for the film edition of West Side Story in 1961. He was among the six directors who took home an Academy Award for Best Director in their directorial debut. It was during that same year that he was honored by a special award owing to his choreographic achievements in movies by the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences and Arts. By 1998, the year he died, he had won five Tony Awards, two Academy Awards, received the Kennedy Center Honors, National Medal of Arts, French Legion of Honor, an Honorary Membership of American Academy & Institute of Letter and Arts, and three Honorary Doctorates. In 1998, he was welcomed into Mr. & Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney’s Hall of Fame in the National Museum of Dance. The “New York City Ballet: All Robbins” performance is not one to be missed.
