March 26th, 2019
PHOENIX – George Balanchine, known as the father of American ballet, broke ground when he put his twist on traditional ballet standards and technique. Ballet Arizona’s Artistic Director, Ib Andersen, will present three interpretations of Balanchine’s work during All Balanchine, including one never before performed by Ballet Arizona.
Andersen is one of only a handful of artists worldwide entrusted by the Balanchine Trust to stage these masterpieces. Ballet Arizona will present five performances of All Balanchine from Thursday, May 2 through Sunday, May 5 at Symphony Hall. All Balanchine is sponsored in part by Mayo Clinic and by G.G. Gems, Inc.
