PLEASE NOTE: Due to a scheduling conflict, the Wednesday, March 13 performance by Robert Fairchild, as part of the Renée Fleming VOICES series at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater, has been cancelled. Ticketholders may exchange their tickets for any other event in the 2018–2019 Renée Fleming VOICES series by calling the Advance Sales Box Office at (202) 416-8540, or emailing boxoffice-advancesales@kennedy-center.org, or visiting the Kennedy Center box office in person.

The former New York City Ballet Principal Dancer–who was nominated for a Tony Award® for his “triple threat” acting/singing/dancing lead role in Christopher Wheeldon’s An American in Paris—was last seen at the Kennedy Center as part of DEMO: Time in 2015. He now returns as part of our vocal spotlight series to offer an evening of song and dance with classics from An American in Paris and more.

Renée Fleming says:
“Robbie Fairchild is one of the rare breed of artists who can truly be described as a 'triple threat'—a world-class dancer, consummate vocalist, and compelling actor—a combination I think of as a uniquely American innovation, like the Broadway musical. First an acclaimed principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, he then dazzled Broadway with his Tony®-nominated performance in An American in Paris, which I count myself fortunate to have seen. On top of these achievements, he’s also a talented choreographer, most recently with the world-premiere, off-Broadway adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, in which he also starred. Any chance to see a performer with all of these gifts is not to be missed.”
