Get a quick overview of the three ballets that make up Program 03: Ratmansky’s Symphony #9, an abstract portrait of Shostakovich; Danielle Rowe’s Wooden Dimes, a world premiere created during the COVID-19 pandemic set in the roaring ’20s; and Yuri Possokhov’s Swimmer, which turns John Cheever’s short story into a psychedelic tour of American cultural life.
