nikolai-and-others In Nikolai and the Others playwright Richard Nelson reimagines the historic collaboration between Balanchine and Stravinsky and offers insights into their creation of the ballet Orpheus while entertaining questions regarding the arts, funding creative projects  and politics in America.

Synopsis

A spring weekend in Westport, CT, in 1948 is the setting for Nikolai and the Others. During the weekend, a close-knit group of Russian emigres meet to eat, drink and talk. As the days progress, this play provides insights into collaborative creativity and art and asks us to consider the manner in which merican art was funded at the outset of the Cold War.
