About

In this continuation of the popular Ballet 360° lecture series, dance critic Alexandra Tomalonis uses video of well-known ballets to take us beyond the steps and into the fine craft of making a ballet.

In the 1940s, American Ballet Theatre (then Ballet Theatre) was known for innovative one-act ballets--George Balachine's Theme and Variations and Anthony Tudor's Pillar of Fire among them. Frederick Ashton's 1940s Cinderella is new to the ABT repertory, and is now a groundbreaking work, as Ashton has created a new, refreshed full-length classical ballet very different from what was popular then. Examined from a distance of 75 years, how do these works look today?

Performance Timing: 90 minutes, with no intermission.

NOTE: American Ballet Theatre does not participate in this session.
