Fearful Symmetries is a ballet for two principal couples, a soloist couple, three corps men, six corps women, and four corps couples. It is the second work Peter Martins has choreographed to the music of John Adams. A large, complex ballet bathed in dramatic and ever-changing hues of red and blue created by Mark Stanley, it matches the music's racing pulse in striking combination. John Adams (b. 1947) grew up in New England and studied at Harvard with Leon Kirchner and Roger Sessions. He lives in San Francisco where he is music adviser to the San Francisco Symphony and a faculty member at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Influenced by John Cage and Steve Reich, Mr. Adams' music is both electronic and instrumental, and is known for its combination of minimalism and romanticism.
