Details of The Suzanne Farrell Ballet and the Ticket Luck value
The Suzanne Farrell Ballet is a famous American ballet company that is located at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. It was founded by Suzanne Farrell, for whom it is named, in 2000. Suzanne Farrell is a famous American ballerina and one of the most popular ballerinas to have worked with George Balanchine. She was also the principal dancer of the New York City Ballet. Today, it has grown into a company with a repertoire that few ballet companies can boast of. It is produced by the Kennedy Center and has been performing live via The Suzanne Farrell Ballet tickets at the center since 1999. It has also gone on international and national tours since then.
Though founded in 2000, groundwork for The Suzanne Farrell Ballet began back in 1993 when the Kennedy Center launched its Exploring Ballet with Suzanne Farrell, a program offering ballet master classes to students from all over the US under the tutorship of Suzanne Farrell. This program soon grew and in 1999, the ballet company made its debut as part of the Balanchine Celebration held at the Kennedy Center where it performed the classical music composition, Divertimento No. 15. Students from the Exploring Ballet with Suzanne Farrell have gone on to join The Suzanne Farrell Ballet.
After its debut performance, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet went on to successful East Coast tour and various performances at the Kennedy Center which were critically acclaimed. The East Coast tour was labeled as Suzanne Farrell Stages the Masters of 20th Century Ballet. The ballet company was formed at the time of a number of professional ballet dancers who had been hand picked by Suzanne Farrell herself and who performed under her.
In 2001, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet opened up the ballet season at the Kennedy Center, performing several shows at the Eisenhower Theater with six company premieres. In 2002, it again performed at the Kennedy Center, premiering a number of George Balanchine’s works including Chaconne, Who Cares? and Raymonda Variations. They also performed A Farewell to Music by Anthony Morgan, a renowned Canadian choreographer.
After a successful 2003 US tour, the company’s very first of the West Coast, they returned to the Kennedy Center where they again opened up the ballet season at the Eisenhower Theatre with a whole week’s worth of performances. These included Mozartiana, Tchaikovsky's Pas de Deux, Serenade and George Balanchine’s Tempo di Vals from The Nutcracker and Tempo di Vals from George Balanchine's The Nutcracker in celebration of the Tchaikovsky Festival that took place at the Kennedy Center that year.
In 2005, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet went on to stage George Balanchine’s Don Quixote alongwith the National Ballet of Canada which was the first staging of the ballet in over twenty five years. It was in fact an exclusive ballet that had been created specially for Suzanne Farrell by George Balanchine. That season, the ballet again returned to the Kennedy Center where it kicked off the season with a program made up exclusively of George Balanchine’s ballets such as La Source and La Valse.
All in all, this is a ballet company that has been hailed as one of America’s finest and headed by america’s finest ballerina. As such, its performance are a must see live via The Suzanne Farrell Ballet tickets not only at the Kennedy Center but at venues all over the world in countries such as Canada.
