Repertoire Note

Matinées musicales was composed as a companion piece to the immensely popular Soirées musicales at the request of Lincoln Kirstein and the American Ballet Company. It draws on similar source material to its predecessor, and the ‘double bill’ was choreographed by Balanchine in 1941.
