Program Description : Mikhail Baryshnikov is known to the public as the greatest classical male dancer of the late 20th century. Dazzling audiences with his athleticism and grace, he reached celebrity status attracting new audiences to the world of dance. "Metamorphosis" is a word often used to describe his career, which goes far beyond the dance world. A prolific and diverse artist, he has performed on stage, in film, theater and television. Lecturer Marilyn Carminio will take us from his boyhood in Soviet occupied Latvia to his life in the west and will chart his course to the present day. The presentation contains many videoclips including "The Sinatra Suite" with music by Frank Sinatra and choreography by Twyla Tharp. Whether you have never seen a ballet, are an avid balletomane or somewhere in between, the joy of watching Baryshnikov in his many incarnations is something you will not soon forget.
