The Suzanne Farrell Ballet
Suzanne Farrell, Artistic Director
November 7, 7:30 p.m.
--with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra
Program A (Nov. 7) (1 hour, 48 min., with two 20-min. intermissions)

Intermezzo from Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet (Balanchine/Brahms, orch. Schoenberg)
Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (Balanchine/Rodgers, arr. Kay)
The Kennedy Center's own The Suzanne Farrell Ballet returns in their 11th annual season for seven dazzling performances. A renowned ballerina and George Balanchine protégée, Suzanne Farrell has become a "tireless Balanchine preservationist and one of the foremost interpreters of the great choreographer's work" (The New York Times). Her company, with Balanchine in its pedigree, carries forth his legacy with two unforgettable all-Balanchine programs, including company premieres of the nuanced and mesmerizing Valse-Fantaisie, the sweepingly romantic Intermezzo from Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet, and Balanchine's iconic 1929 masterpiece of biblical sin and redemption, Prodigal Son.
The engagement also brings the company premiere of the inventive Danses Concertantes, a rarely performed work featured as part of the Balanchine Preservation Initiative. Additionally, the sublimely choreographed Divertimento No. 15, frequently excerpted for performances, will be presented by the company as a full ballet for the first time since 2005. Brimming with elegance, Divertimento No. 15 "creates an ideal realm in which courtesy, chivalry, brilliance, serenity, and expansiveness coexist and give off light" (The New York Times).
Both programs will close with Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, the ballet featured in Richard Rodgers's musical On Your Toes. The first of several collaborations with Rodgers, Balanchine expanded Slaughter on Tenth Avenue into a stand-alone ballet, complete with gangsters, tap-dancing, and drama.
RUNNING TIME: Approx. 2 hours
