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.

George Balanchine's Jewels and Marius Petipa's Don Quixote may seem at first to occupy different planets, but both share ballet's roots and rules. The elegant Jewels was the world's first three-act ballet without a story; Don Quixote is a tale ripped from the great Cervantes novel and, in recent years, occasionally souped up with contemporary competition technique. So, what do they share?

Performance Timing: 90 minutes
