Vladimir Vasiliev: A Gala Tribute to a 20th Century Dance Legend
SOLD OUT - Partial View seats still available through the Box Office window.
Vladimir Vasiliev is a living legend that has defined 20th Century ballet. He is the only dancer to have been given the title of “World’s Best Dancer” by the Paris Dance Academy, hailed by critics worldwide as “God of the dance … a miracle in art, perfection.” Having dazzled the world for half a century with his performances at Bolshoi Ballet and virtually every major company around the world, this dance icon will return to New York with a tour-de-force performance, following his 20-year absence from the New York stage after his last public performance at the Metropolitan Opera.
On March 27, 2010 Youth America Grand Prix will pay tribute to this giant in the ballet world by presenting a spectacular Gala performance featuring the stars of Bolshoi Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, The Royal Ballet, New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre, who will perform in honor of the legendary dancer and Artistic Director of the Bolshoi Ballet on his 70th birthday.
