In this five-part program, we juxtapose all-female and all-male ballets to explore gender stereotypes, and add in one of Resident Choreographer Nicolo Fonte’s most successful works to bring the two sexes together. We open with one of the most iconic female roles in all of ballet, that of The Dying Swan. Created by Michel Fokine for the legendary Anna Pavlova, this masterpiece epitomizes the ethereal beauty and fragility of a romantic-era ballerina.
