The programs are the creation of Robert de Warren, whose distinguished global career as an artistic director of ballet companies encompassed positions as director of the National Ballet of Iran, the Northern Ballet Theatre in the United Kingdom, and La Scala in Milan before leading the Sarasota Ballet of Florida to worldwide recognition.

Julie Kent, principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre, says of the series: “Robert de Warren is a wonderful, charismatic voice from the dance world, who delivers our history with great style and panache.”
