This week on the “Conversations on Dance” podcast, we have the pleasure of speaking with New York Times Chief Dance Critic, Alastair Macaulay. For the past 30 years Alastair has been researching George Balanchine’s ’Serenade’ and has recently complied his work into a Symposium at the New York Public Library entitled “Balanchine’s Serenade: An Evening of Films, Commentary, and Memories.” Today he sits down with us to discuss this historical and iconic ballet and it’s history. Click here to listen.
This is one of our more technical episodes, so we suggest reviewing the ballet after listening to the podcast. Below, find a list of moments that Alastair discusses at length in the podcast, as well as a full video version from YouTube that was filmed for television. The leads are Darci Kistler, Kyra Nichols, Maria Calegari, Adam Luders, and Leonid Koslov. (Alastair discusses Calegari in the episode). The list will include a time stamp for your convenience.
