Ashton and Balanchine: Parallel Lives
2018 Lincoln Kirstein Lecture featuring Alastair Macaulay

Join The Center for Ballet and the Arts for the annual Lincoln Kirstein Lecture, co-presented by the New York Library for the Performing Arts.  In “Ashton and Balanchine: Parallel Lives," The New York Times's chief dance critic Alastair Macaulay will show ways in which Frederick Ashton and George Balanchine watched each other, took ideas from each other, differed from each other, and, between them, did more than anyone else in twentieth-century ballet to advance the nature of classicism in dance.

Ashton, Macaulay, Balanchine
