Interesting Balanchine picture

Recommended Posts

A good friend of mine, on her way back from Moscow last year picked me up a magazine from the the Bolshoi. It has several articles on Balanchine and his dancers. In one picture of Balanchine he is dressed in full English riding gear, complete with a derby standing next to a horse. Since the horse has an English saddle I'm assuming the picture was taken in England, perhaps in in the 1930's? Balanchine and the horse are posing in what looks to be a London residential street. The picture just strikes me as interesting. Seeing Balanchine looking like a English Lord out for ride on his stallion. Did he actually ride? I've never read that he did.

The magazine also contains articles on Violette Verdy and Adam Luders, alas I don't read Russian.
