I couldn't find a reference in this topic area to the special exhibit at the Harvard Theatre Collection: George Balanchine - A Life's Journey in Ballet. It only runs until May 28 so there isn't much time left to see it. The HTC is open 1:00-4:45 Monday - Friday.

The exhibit includes some fascinating letters and telegrams describing Balanchines interactions with Lincoln Kirstein, composers, dancers, and many other people as Mr. B. came to the US, developed his school and company, negotiated for music and dancers, info about the Ford Foundation grant, etc. There are also many photographs, programs and brochures, posters, and some costumes and toe shoes. It took us about an hour to go through it.

It is worth the time for those in the Boston area.
