The relationship between George Balanchine and Suzanne Farrell, the beautiful young student he plucked from the corps, led to an unusual degree of collaboration between creator and muse, with the dancer’s sense of daring inspiring the late choreographer to some of his finest work. Seven years ago, Miss Farrell founded her eponymous company, which concentrates on sensitive staging of Balanchine ballets. Recently, she started a new project: unearthing fragments of lost ballets that were forgotten or discarded. (Ballet is not called the ephemeral art for nothing.) Tomorrow, her company gives a free performance of five of these lost gems at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage at 6 p.m. (Some also will be on the program when her company appears at the Opera House June 6 through 10.) Admission is free.
