Topic - Mikhail Baryshnikov
Mikhail Baryshnikov is a master of innovation. This week he utilizes his expertise in both dance and drama to make his Shakespeare Theatre Company debut in "Man in a Case." Adapted from two Chekhov stories by Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar, the multimedia production features Misha, as he prefers to be called, and members of their Big Dance Theater.
Sitting in the theater where he's about to showcase his latest work, Mikhail Baryshnikov confesses that even after decades on stage, he still gets nervous before every curtain call.
The dancer in the photograph isn't frozen in time. Her body is the source of light on a darkened stage, and with a blur of muscle, she's dancing straight at the viewer who has stepped into her moment.
A 19th century painting of St. Petersburg that Mikhail Baryshnikov purchased decades ago, and depicting the Russian city he loved, was auctioned Tuesday for $746,500 to benefit the famous dancer's New York City performing arts center.
The American Ballet Theatre has returned to Moscow for the first time since the 1960s and the first time since the defection of Mikhail Baryshnikov, who left Russia's famed Bolshoi Theatre to bring his luminous star power to the U.S. ballet company.
A 19th century painting of St. Petersburg that Mikhail Baryshnikov purchased decades ago will be auctioned to help benefit new works at his Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City.
A suburban New York house owned by Mikhail Baryshnikov is on the market for an asking price of about $4 million.
Baryshnikov said he recently donated the painting to the center's foundation so it could sell it to raise money for new programming from theater directors, musicians and choreographers.
Baryshnikov told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that he was very sentimental about "View of St. Petersburg" because he "spent the best of my youth" there.
