(Conducted in Cantonese)
Charismatic dancers of the 20th century - Vaslav Nijinsky, Margot Fonteyn, Rudolf Nureyev, Natalia Makarova and Mikhail Baryshnikov – are superstars who had interpreted countless dance classics and are loved by millions of dance enthusiasts. These outstanding dancers inherited and passed down centuries of ballet traditions and opened up new horizons in the realm of dance. They danced, and in the wake of their excellence, choreographed, dedicating themselves to the creation of new dances that stood at the forefront of their times, or supervising the staging of their own versions of full-length productions.
The lecture series this year has The Legend Continues as its theme. We will revisit various thrilling excerpts of the gravity-defying moments of these great ballet dancers, and appreciate a new generation of dance stars who have taken the baton in their performance of representative classical and contemporary pieces.
