Balanchine's "Stars and Stripes" - The Suzanne Farrell Ballet | LIVE at The Kennedy Center
Allynne Noelle and Thomas Garrett of The Suzanne Farrell Ballet perform a selection from "Stars and Stripes" LIVE at the Kennedy Center.
Created in 1958, Stars and Stripes is divided into five "campaigns" in which more than 40 dancers perform to various marches by John Philip Sousa, complete with baton twirling, military formations, and rifle-bearing ballerinas. Over the years, Balanchine`s exuberantly patriotic ballet has been staged for many landmark moments in American history, including a tribute to President John F. Kennedy.
Part of Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center, October 12, 2016.
