Who cares? was founded in 1970 by the New York City Ballet . is a suite of dances to songs by George and Ira Gershwin - including the "classic" that gave the piece its name, and I Got Rhythm - set against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline. Who cares? brings together an ensemble of dancers in various formations, followed by four soloists. All come together in a playful finale in which Balanchine wanted to show the musical genius and melodic beauty of Gershwin's compositions through classical dance. Ballet Impérial is a tribute to the grandeur of Imperial Russia and was created in 1941 by the American Ballet Caravan to Tchaikovsky's Second Piano Concerto. A work in which George Balanchine brilliantly celebrates the technical virtuosity of academic ballet in the style of Petipa - his "spiritual father" - and the great St. Petersburg tradition.
