Concerto Six Twenty-Two received its world premiere at Carnegie Hall in 1986. The duet from Concerto Six Twenty-Two was subsequently performed in 1987 at the Dancing for Life event at the New York State Theatre, the first-ever response to the AIDS crisis by the dance community. The male duet gave the work special resonance in the face of the AIDS crisis, even though the theme is timeless.
Lubovitch’s Othello received its world premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1997. The acclaimed evening-length ballet, with an original score by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, was a joint production of the Lubovitch company, American Ballet Theatre, and San Francisco Ballet.
In addition to his achievements on the concert stage, in film, and on Broadway, Lubovitch has created award-winning ice-dancing works for many Olympians including Paul & Isabelle Duchesnay, John Curry, Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Brian Orser, JoJo Starbuck, and Paul Wylie. His feature-length ice-dance specials for television include The Planets for A&E, which was nominated for an International Emmy Award, a Cable AceAward, and a Grammy Award.
