Off the Wall Lecture, Part 2: "Ballet During the Time of Degas: The Dancer as Muse"
Thursday, April 10, 6:30 p.m.
Join Paul Vasterling, artistic director for the Nashville Ballet, a Fulbright Scholar and an award-winning choreographer, as he discusses Edgar Degas’ view of the romantic ballet. As a life-long enthusiast of music and opera, Degas was a regular attendee of the Paris Opéra, both as an audience member and backstage visitor, giving him a unique perspective of the lives and work of the dancers there. This is the second of a three-part lecture series examining the Monet to Dalí: Modern Masters from the Cleveland Museum of Art exhibition from various disciplines.
