– SPECIAL EVENT –

DAVID HALLBERG IN CONVERSATION WITH DEREK BLASBERG

Thu, Nov 9, 7 pm, tickets from $29

Widely considered “the most exciting male dancer in the western world” (The New Yorker) David Hallberg has awed audiences around the world with outstanding leading performances in Giselle, Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake. He is a Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre in New York, as well as the first American Principal with the famed Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. This past May he triumphantly returned to the stage at Lincoln Center after a devastating injury forced a two-and-a-half year absence, during which time many people — including David himself — wondered if he would ever dance again.

David reflects on his inspiration, self-doubt and perfectionism as he speaks with Vanity Fair ’s Derek Blasberg about his career — from daily classes and rehearsals to triumphant performances, and how he approaches interpreting ballet’s greatest roles. He reveals the vicious bullying he endured as a child, the ambition he had to tame as a new member of American Ballet Theatre and the reasons behind his headline-grabbing decision to be the first American to join the top rank of Bolshoi Ballet. He also shares how he dealt with the crippling ankle injury he sustained at the peak of his abilities, and how he made a miraculous return to the stage as a new artist and a new man. David’s new book is A Body of Work (Touchstone; November 7). A book signing follows the event.
