Les Noces is a ballet choreographed by Jerome Robbins, subsequently New York City Ballet balletmaster, to the 1923 version of Stravinsky's eponymous music for American Ballet Theatre with sets by Oliver Smith under the supervision of Rosaria Sinisi, costumes by Patricia Zipprodt, and lighting by Jennifer Tipton. The premiere took place March 30, 1965, at the New York State Theater, Lincoln Center. The choreographer re-staged Les Noces for New York City Ballet to a recording of the piece by the Pokrovsky Ensemble, sung in the full-throated style of traditional Russian village wedding celebrations. The restaging premiered May 20, 1998, again at the New York State Theater. It was Robbins' last work.
