Glinka Pas de Trois
This virtuoso piece for two ballerinas and one man is an intricate and exquisite work. Originally created in 1955 for Andre Eglevsky, Melissa Hayden, and Allegra Kent, premiering in City Center, NY, this piece “involved” in the Balanchine style still maintains Mr. Balanchine’s Petipa roots. It plays and challenges the beautiful music with its steps, in total genius. The solos flow one after the other, amidst an intro, adagio and coda.
