This new documentary revisits the glory years of George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet. Former dancers remember their time with Balanchine, explaining how they tried to fulfill the vision of a genius who was at once a groundbreaking choreographer, taskmaster, mad scientist, and spiritual teacher. The film is filled with never-before-seen archival footage of Balanchine at work during rehearsals and classes in preparation for his seminal works. Cleveland premiere. DCP. 88 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes or twofers.
