Join us for a very special afternoon as we celebrate the final performances of The Suzanne Farrell Ballet.
Under the artistic direction of Suzanne Farrell, George Balanchine’s most celebrated muse, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet reveals unique insights into Balanchine’s works: with Ms. Farrell’s coaching and guidance, the company’s performances reveal the musicality and nuance of Balanchine’s masterful ballets in ways that no other stagings can. New York Times Chief Dance Critic Alastair Macaulay has praised the company for “tackling arduous roles…with degrees of energy, scale, detailed nuance, and musical sophistication seldom found anywhere.”
The program is a pageant of favorites, all handpicked for their special meaning to Ms. Farrell, including classic works of the cannon and iconic works created especially for her by Mr. Balanchine.
Says Ms. Farrell: “The enormous respect and pride I have for my dancers is immeasurable. This final program is a reflection of our last 16 years. It has been an honor to serve the art of ballet and of George Balanchine.”
