What you'll learn in this musical theater class:

Dance critic Alexandra Tomalonis uses discussion and video to explore various topics in the art form. In this session, delve into Serenade after Plato's Symposium, Whipped Cream, and other ballets by Alexei Ratmansky, ABT's Artist in Residence.

If any choreographer working today honors ballet's traditions while looking into the future, it is Alexei Ratmansky, now Artist in Residence at American Ballet Theatre. Two of his works we'll see would seem to exemplify his range. "Alexei Ratmansky's latest ballet, Serenade after Plato's Symposium, is the most authoritatively original creation this bewilderingly versatile choreographer has given us," wrote New York Times critic Alastair Macaulay about Ratmansky's ballet to the Leonard Bernstein score of the same name. Who else could successfully explore intellectual discourse in a classical ballet? And who else would closely follow such a creation by a concoction with the working title of Whipped Cream to music of Richard Strauss? Whipped Cream and Plato: This is just a hint of the range of the choreographer who has emerged as one of the greatest of his generation, and one that is decidedly worth exploring.

NOTE: American Ballet Theatre does not participate in this session.
