The Balanchine legacy

 

continued

The much younger Suzanne Farrell Ballet is a handpicked group of exceptional dancers that calls the Kennedy Center in D.C. home. On Friday, October 31, the company performs five works - including Meditation (1963), Balanchine's haunting love letter to Farrell and the first of many ballets he made for her - all set to Tchaikovsky, one of Balanchine's most profound influences from St. Petersburg.

To learn more about the Balanchine legacy, and to hear Farrell and Villella speak about their personal experiences in the studio with Balanchine, check out the free international symposium devoted to the choreographer sponsored by the U-M Center for Russian and East European Studies on Friday and Saturday, October 31 and November 1, at Rackham Auditorium.    (end of article)
