. . . to Suzanne Farrell on her birthday today, created by a 13 year-old girl in Russia named Tamara Pkhakadze.

Farrell was the greatest dancer I ever saw perform in person, greater even than Baryshnikov, and one of the great artists of our time.

With thanks to Toni Bentley, who wrote a profile for The New York Times of Pkhakadze, which you can read here.

  1. Thanks, Lloyd. As you know, some of those photos are mighty rare.

    I’ve seen every program Farrell’s presented at the Kennedy Center, but what a shame and a sin that Martins let her go at NYCB almost 20 years ago. Après moi, le turf wars.

    • Things were never the same after Balanchine — but how could they have been?
