That masterpiece â€” pure dance, ceremonious, hierarchical, formal, classicism in excelsis â€” exemplified the sublimity that Robbins henceforth strove to pursue. He immediately utilized to become part of the Balanchine enterprise, and Balanchine introduced him on board. Robbins created roles for Balanchine, made works for Metropolis Ballet; collaborated with him on a few ballets (in the Balanchine Nutcracker,â€ the battle of mice and toy troopers was anonymously made by Robbins); and, in Pulcinellaâ€ (1972, sharing credit this time with Balanchine) even danced with him.
