Description
 
Balanchine’s life story is a fascinating journey -- from his near-accidental enrollment, at the age of 9, in St. Petersburg’s Imperial School of Ballet, through the deprivation of Bolshevik Russia, to Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, & finally, in 1933, to the U.S. & to the N.Y. City Ballet, to which his reputation is forever tied. His ideas revolutionized ballet, extending the vocabulary of classical dance both through his teaching & through a series of great works, from his collaboration with Stravinsky, to his re-stagings of 19th-cent. classics, incl. the popular “Nutcracker.” He also choreographed a series of major musicals on Broadway; & in Hollywood, he  explored the possibilities of filmed dance. “Chronicles the life & achievements of ballet’s foremost choreographer.” Photos.
