Beyond Balanchine: The History of Ballet
92nd Y Tribeca
The dramatic defection of the Kirov Ballet’s Rudolf Nureyev to the West is just one pivotal event in the colorful history of ballet. Jennifer Homans follows ballet across continents and through time from its beginnings as an elegant Western European court art to its elaboration under the Russian tsars to its high-water mark in America and the USSR during the cold war. Learn why ballet was not only artistic, but political, bound up with the fate of kings, courts and states. Homans is a historian and dance critic for The New Republic, a former professional dancer and the author of Angels: A History of Ballet, which The New York Times called “the only truly definitive history of the most impossibly fantastic art form, ballet….” 6.00 for tickets
