On Wednesday, May 13, 2009, the New York City Ballet held its 2009 Spring Gala at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Franci Blassberg and Joe Rice, Lisa Maria and Philip Falcone, and Lesley Stahl and Aaron Latham were Gala chairmen.

One of the most anticipated social events of the season, the Gala celebrated the Company's unparalleled commitment to new choreography. The one-time-only program featured the world premieres of NYCB Principal Dancer Benjamin Millepied's Quasi Una Fantasia and Dresden SemperOper Ballet Principal Dancer Jiří Bubeníček's Toccata. The program culminated with George Balanchine's classic Theme and Variations. Following this exciting program, guests attended an elegant black-tie Supper Ball on the Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater.
