In a lively, wide-ranging discussion about the relationship between music and choreography, Associate Artistic Director Wendy Whelan is joined by composer Nico Muhly, who is currently collaborating on a new work with Justin Peck premiering at NYCB on February 26. Muhly muses on the manner in which ballet has enriched his appreciation of the works of Stravinsky, why he loves watching from the wings, and how his newest work is like a musical scavenger hunt for Peck.
