The incomparable Mikhail Baryshnikov has returned to star in the Lincoln Center production of “In Paris” for six performances beginning August 1st. For the best ground transportation from the Newark Airport to a New York area hotel or simply for limousine service to the Lincoln Center, Royal Coachman is the preferred provider for many business executives, entertainment celebrities and the locals.
The event is part of the 2012 Lincoln Center Festival, which began July 5th and ends August 5th. Based upon a 1940 short story from Russia’s first Nobel Prize winner, Ivan Bunin, “In Paris” is a tragic love story about two Russian immigrants, a young woman who works as waitress in a Russian restaurant and a man who once served as a general in the Russian Army. The two meet while the waitress is working at the restaurant in Paris. The production has been receiving tremendous reviews and the New York production at the prestigious Lincoln Center is highly anticipated.
Considered to be one of the greatest ballet dancers of all time, Baryshnikov, now 64 years old, will be speaking in his native language for all of the performances of “In Paris”, which is something he hasn’t done much of since he defected from the Soviet Union in 1974, while he was on tour with the Bolshoi Ballet in Toronto. Shortly after this incident, he first started working with the Royal Winnipeg, then moved on to the American Ballet Theatre in New York City that same year and later with the New York City Ballet. In 1980, he was named the artistic director of the American Ballet Theatre but eventually formed his own dance company, the White Oak Dance Project, which is now part of the Baryshnikov Arts Center in Manhattan. The Russian ballet extraordinaire has also had a successful career in film and television.
Led by Director Dmitri Krymov, “In Paris” will conclude its run of shows on the final day of the Lincoln Center Festival. The production had its premiere in Helsinki, with other performances in Paris, Santa Monica, Berkeley and Spoleto, Italy. Also appearing in the performances is the beautiful Anna Sinyakina, from the Dmitri Krymov Laboratory in the co-lead role as Olga, the waitress to Baryshnikov’s Nikolai, the retired Russian general.
