Suzanne Farrell, principal ballerina of the New York City Ballet, toured with the Chicago City Ballet in 1984 as Guest Artist, a collaboration that resulted in an Emmy award. Maria Tallchief was the founder of the CCB and at the time of this performance was co-artistic director with Paul Mejia, the choreographer of "Eight by Adler", a suite of tunes by Richard Adler. The video you're watching is the first of those eight segments. The venue for this enchanting performance was an architectural gem from 1926 - the elegant Rialto Square Theater in Joliet, Illinois.


The other piece for this night's performance in 1984 was "The Seasons", also choreographed by Paul Mejia. See an excerpt HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZULHge...

NOTE: Paul Mejia is still active as a choreographer and "Eight By Adler" is periodically performed in its entirety. Please visit http://www.mejiaballet.org OR http://www.facebook.com/mejiaballet
