Hear the Dance host and Principal Dancer Jared Angle explores George Balanchine’s bombastic and infinitely complex Symphony in Three Movements on this week’s episode. Jared speaks with two generations of the ballet's dancers: former NYCB dancer and current School of American Ballet faculty member Susan Pilarre, who originated one of the “five couple” roles in the ballet’s 1972 Stravinsky Festival premiere and who has staged the work for several companies; and current Soloist Ashley Laracey, who debuted the lead role in the pas de deux, or what she calls a pas de quatre, just a week after learning she was pregnant with twins.
