The ballet Dybbuk was Bernstein’s fourth and final collaboration with choreographer Jerome Robbins, written to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the state of Israel.

The plot concerns a spirit that seeks to enter the body of a living person, and the battle between good and evil is represented musically by the conflict between atonality and tonality.

Different in every respect is the symphonically-conceived ballet Fancy Free.

It follows three sailors on shore leave in New York for 24 hours, and when it was premièred in 1944 it brought Bernstein his first major public success as a composer.
