Apr. 2-6: New York City Ballet
The New York City Ballet is on stage in The Kennedy Center’s Opera House through Sunday. The company will perform two programs: George Balanchine’s Jewels, and a mixed repertory program featuring contemporary work, including Year of the Rabbit by Justin Peck and Christopher Wheeldon’s Soirée Musicale. In Balanchine’s 1967 work Jewels, dancers clad in glittering costumes showcase the celebrated choreographer’s range of styles through three acts: Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds.

Apr. 2: Renée Rendine: billow
You can head to the Corcoran Gallery of Art tonight at 7 to see Baltimore-based artist Renée Rendine present a new, site-specific performance entitled “billow.” The artist addresses themes of metamorphosis, growth and decay by drawing on the labor of insects as a metaphor for human behavior. The event is free with museum admission, which is just $5 tonight.
