Description

From first rehearsal to world premiere, Ballet 422 takes us backstage at the New York City Ballet (NYCB) as dancer and up-and-coming choreographer Justin Peck crafts a new work. Ballet 422 illuminates the process behind creating a ballet within the ongoing cycle of rehearsals and performances at one of the world’s great ballet companies. Under the artistic direction of Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins, NYCB boasts a roster of more than 90 elite dancers and a repertory of works by many of ballet’s greatest choreographers. For the Company’s 2013 Winter Season Justin Peck is commissioned to create a new ballet. With unprecedented access to an elite world, the film presents an unembellished vérité portrait of the process as Peck collaborates with musicians, lighting designers, costume designers and his fellow dancers to create Paz de la Jolla, NYCB’s 422nd new ballet.
