Suzanne Farrell Ballet and Miami City Ballet

The Balanchine legacy

Suzanne Farrell and Edward Villella

From the October, 2003 issue

In August 1913, nine-year old Georgi Melitonovitch Balanchivadze became a boarding student at the Imperial Theater Ballet School in St. Petersburg, Russia. A week later, he ran away. Not exactly an auspicious beginning for the later-renamed George Balanchine, arguably the most influential and revolutionary choreographer of the twentieth century.
