Nikolai and the Others Summary

It’s 1948 and during a spring weekend in Westport, CT a close-knit group of Russian emigres, including choreographer George Balanchine (to be played by Michael Cerveris), composer Igor Stravinsky (John Glover), conductor Serge Koussevitsky (Dale Place), painter/set designer Sergey Sudeikin (Alvin Epstein) and composer Nikolai Nabokov (Stephen Kunken), gather to eat, drink and talk. In Nikolai and the Others playwright Richard Nelson reimagines, during the course of this weekend, the creation of Balanchine and Stravinsky’s historic collaboration, the ballet Orpheus, and explores the interesting and controversial ways American art was funded at the outset of the Cold War. Interspersed throughout the action of the play will be moments of Balanchine’s original Orpheus choreography.
