"Understated glamour, alluring reserve, and attention to detail" is how The New York Times describes The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, led by the legendary New York City Ballet principal whose career of three decades made her the most influential American ballerina of the late 20th century. One of 20th century master choreographer George Balanchine's most celebrated muses, Farrell has staged Balanchine’s acclaimed dances for a range on companies, including the Paris Opera Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Berlin Opera Ballet, Vienna State Opera Ballet, and Bolshoi Ballet. Produced by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Suzanne Farrell Ballet will perform an all-Balanchine program that includes some of this dance master’s most cherished works.
“Stravinsky once remarked to Balanchine that the young Ms. Farrell was the most musically intelligent dancer he had ever seen. Now she is passing that quality on.” – Alastair Macaulay, New York Times “Too distinctive, too juicy, too fabulously fearless to pass up.” – Washington Post Sponsors: Lyndon State College, Bill and Pam Eddy, Lyndon Institute.
