Suzanne Farrell : elusive muse( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profile of the ballerina Suzanne Farrell, most of it told in her own words, focusing on her complex and often troubled professional and private relationship with choreographer George Balanchine. She describes their collaboration, beginning with Movements for piano and orchestra (1963) in which she replaced Diana Adams as creator of the principal female role. Among the major ballets by Balanchine that she created or danced in the 1960s are Meditation; Apollo; Don Quixote, in which Balanchine performed the title role; A midsummer night's dream; and Slaughter on Tenth Avenue. Farrell discusses her marriage to dancer Paul Mejia, which led to a break with Balanchine and her departure from New York City Ballet in 1970; her engagement with Maurice Béjart's Ballet du XXe Siècle; and her return to New York City Ballet in 1974. She discusses Tzigane, the first ballet Balanchine created for her upon her return; her partnership with dancer Peter Martins; and the ballets Robert Schumann's Davidsbündlertänze, Vienna Waltzes and Mozartiana. In conclusion, she talks about her reactions to Balanchine's death, her retirement from performing, and her role in preserving his legacy by teaching and staging his ballets. Additional insights are provided by her mother, Donna Holly; Mejia; Jacques d'Amboise, Arthur Mitchell, Edward Villella, and Béjart. The documentary is profusely illustrated with excerpts of her past performances, and footage of her rehearsing various dancers in ballets from the Balanchine repertory
