Princeton Tonight Presents: An Evening with David Hallberg
World-renowned ballet dancer David Hallberg will hold a filmed conversation with Tina Fehlandt, Lecturer in the Princeton University Program in Dance, followed by an audience Q&A, at the Hearst Dance Theater in Princeton University on Thursday, November 30th at 4:30pm. See
below for ticketing information.
Widely considered “the most exciting male dance in the western world” (The New Yorker) David Hallberg has awed audiences around the world with outstanding leading performances in Giselle, Romeo and Juliet, and Swan Lake. He is a Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre in New York, as well as the first American Principal with the famed Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. In May 2017 he triumphantly returned to the stage at Lincoln Center after a devastating
injury forced a two-and-a-half year absence, during which time many people—including David himself—wondered if he would ever dance again.
Hallberg recently completed his eagerly anticipated memoir, A BODY OF WORK: Dancing to the Edge and Back (Touchstone Hardcover; November 7, 2017; $26.00; 978-1-4767-7115-1), which presents an intimate journey through his artistic life up to the moment he returns to the stage after a devastating injury almost cost him his career. Books will be available for purchase at the event. Please note that this event is also a filmed taping of the television show PRINCETON TONIGHT and that camera crews will be present. Seats obtained through the wait line may be partially obstructed by camera equipment.
