Season 29, Episode 4 Lincoln Center Celebrates Balanchine's 100

First Aired: May 5, 2004

George Balanchine would have been 100 this year, so Lincoln Center is throwing him a party hosted by balletomane (and trained dancer) Sarah Jessica Parker. The program features performances by Placido Domingo and Wynton Marsalis, and a miniprofile narrated by Kevin Kline, as well as excerpts from ballets choreographed by Mr. B and performed by members of the New York City Ballet and the School of American Ballet, both of which Balanchine had a hand in founding. Also scheduled: an appearance by Parker's spurned “Sex and the City” suitor Mikhail Baryshnikov. Don't look for sly byplay between them. “This,” she notes, “is not a night for silly jokes.”
