John Corgiliano’s lush Red Violin score returns to New York City Ballet’s during the 2017-18 season. The choreography by Peter Martins of Corigliano's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (“The Red Violin”) conveys moments of reflection, poignancy and brilliance inspired by the violin’s immense range, versatility and virtuosity. The New York City Ballet performances coincide with celebrations taking place across New York in honor of Corigliano's 80th birthday. 
"The story of 'The Red Violin' is perfect for a lover of the repertoire and the instrument. It spans three centuries in the life of a magnificent but haunted violin in its travels through time and space." — John Corigliano
Corigliano continues to add to one of the richest, most unusual, and most widely celebrated bodies of work any composer has created over the last forty years. His scores, now numbering over one hundred, have won him the Pulitzer Prize, the Grawemeyer Award, five Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, and have been performed and recorded by many of the most prominent orchestras, soloists, and chamber musicians in the world.
