In 1937, George Gershwin asked Balanchine to come to Hollywood to work with him on Samuel Goldwyn’s Follies. Tragically, Gershwin was felled by a brain tumor before he completed the ballet music for the film. Thirty-three years later, Balanchine choreographed Who Cares? to 16 songs Gershwin composed between 1924 and 1931.

Balanchine used the songs not to evoke any particular era but as a way of portraying an exuberance that is both broadly American and charged with the distinctive energy of Manhattan.

The performances of Who Cares? and Allegro Brillante are presented and coordinated by The George Balanchine Trust and have been produced in accordance with the Balanchine Style ® and Balanchine Technique ® Service standards established and provided by the Trust.
