Balanchine considered Mozart’s Divertimento No. 15 the finest ever written. To compliment the sparkling score, he created a work of prodigious ingenuity featuring a regal cast of dancers. Jonathan Stafford and Debra Austin danced this ballet at different points in its history, and now they continue to shape its performances through their roles as Artistic Director of New York City Ballet and Ballet Master for Carolina Ballet.
