Q&A with Gabrielle Lamb, Violette Verdy, and Dominique Delouche on Saturday, January 28 screening!

Drawing on highlights from his previous films on Alicia Markova, Nina Vyroubova and Violette Verdy, France’s leading chronicler of the process of ballet coaching adds new footage of former Paris Opera étoile and Balanchine muse Ghislaine Thesmar. Setting Palais de Cristal with two of the company’s dancers, she sheds fresh light on the French/American symbiosis that marked Balanchine’s career. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for students and fans of his choreography.
