Next month on Oct. 5 the Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater in New York City will premiere “Year of the Rabbit” a ballet set to music by Sufjan Stevens and choreographed by Justin Peck. Performed by dancers from the New York City Ballet the staged recital will be preluded by two sold out preview events this Sept. 23 and 24 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York where excerpts of the work will be shown with Stevens and Peck on hand to discuss their collaboration. The event will be streamed live online here.
