In 2002, the Washington Post exclaimed, “ ensemble that tackles difficult ballets with a fearless zest and makes them seem fresh and alive” following the company’s fall engagement.  Under the auspices of the Kennedy Center, Suzanne Farrell’s international company of dancers returns to the Eisenhower Theater for its third full engagement.  The company will present a program of Balanchine works as part of the Kennedy Center Tchaikovsky Festival and a second program currently titled “The Balanchine Couple” – exploring the unique relationship between the great choreographer and his dancers. The Kennedy Center engagement will be preceded by a 7-week national tour that will include stops in California, New York, and Pennsylvania, among others.
