In response to the 12th anniversary of 9/11, New York City Ballet has released New Beginnings, a short film that captures a touching performance of Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain performed during sunrise on the 57th floor terrace of Four World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.

Danced by Principal Dancers Maria Kowroski and Ask la Cour, the poignant pas de deux is set against One World Trade Center (previously known as the Freedom Tower) and the iconic New York City skyline.
