As many of you know Ms. Farrell was born in Mt. Healthy and began her training at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. When she was 15 she was “discovered” and moved to New York City, where she began a long and exceptional career in ballet with The New York City Ballet, and its founder, George Balanchine. You may also know that Ms. Farrell was a 2005 recipient of the prestigious “Kennedy Center Honors” and is one of Cincinnati’s “100 Who Make a Difference.”
Ms. Farrell founded her company, Suzanne Farrell Ballet, which made its debut in the fall of 2000 at the Kennedy Center’s Balanchine Celebration.
In November 2007 The Suzanne Farrell Ballet Company and the Cincinnati Ballet Company will form a partnership to perform their collaborative works at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. What better time than October 28 to honor Ms. Farrell for her brilliant career, the Kennedy Center honor and this partnership with Cincinnati Ballet.
