Literally one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever watched. 

New York City Ballet presents New Beginnings; September 12, 2013. 

Filmed at sunrise on the 57th floor of 4 World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, this short film captures an extraordinary and moving performance by principal dancers Maria Kowroski and Ask la Cour of Christopher Wheeldon’s “After the Rain†set to “Spiegel Im Spiegel†by Arvo Part. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home.
