NYCB Vol. 4 No. 20 - Apollo

Updated: Apr 4

Jacques d’Amboise was the definitive interpreter of the role Apollo from 1951-1968.

In a 2016 interview for the Balanchine Foundation, Jacques reminisced; “Do you know, I did it for almost 20 years and I never achieved everything that could be in it.” Imagine….a work so rich that even 20 years isn’t enough time to discover every nuance of the role!
