NYCB Vol. 9 No. 16 - Nutcracker

Updated: Mar 30

(16/50) Suzanne: "Mr. Balanchine treated all human beings with respect, including children. He never talked down to them, or for that matter choreographed down to them. He dealt with all people at their highest level and assumed that they would behave at that level. And that is what the Sugar Plum Fairy does too.”

—Suzanne Farrell in The Nutcracker: A Story & a Ballet by Ellen Switzer
