Balanchine in Paris [electronic resource]

Loading...
"Balanchine in Paris is the most recent film in the collection, Etoiles pour l'example, by the distinguished French film maker, Dominique Delouche. Throughout his life, the Russian-born choreographer, more usually associated with New York City Ballet which he founded with Lincoln Kirstein in 1934, kept close contact with France, the country where his first creations were staged and where he so nearly became the artistic director of the Paris Opera Ballet.

"On a thin tightrope, high up under the canvas of a circus tent, Ayin dances gracefully like a character from a fairytale. Her sister Sky waits in the wings, ready to perform a poetic rope dance. This is the 216th performance of the show and the very last. After years of artistic collaboration and intertwined personal lives, a small circus troupe have reached the end of the line."--Publisher's website.
