#TBT Video: Kirkland and Baryshnikov

Posted on November 07, 2013 by Margaret Fuhrer

American Ballet Theatre is dancing Theme and Variations, made for the company by Balanchine in 1947, this fall season. To celebrate, I thought I'd share one of my favorite Theme interpretations of all time: that of Gelsey Kirkland and Mikhail Baryshnikov. Here they are dancing the masterpiece in 1978. Happy #ThrowbackThursday!
