NYCB Poised to Premiere Valentino's Latest Creations

New York City Ballet opens its fall season at Lincoln Center tomorrow, and on Thursday the company hosts its Fall Gala featuring couture costumes by designer Valentino Garavani, himself a longtime fan of classical dance.


Valentino has created one-of-a-kind designs for four of the evening's five performances. Word on the street is Balanchine's Rubies was picked as one of the ballets because it centers on Valentino's signature color: red.
