The best way to learn dance history is in the theater. And the three-week Kirov Ballet season that opened at City Center on Tuesday night looks on paper like a major course in the history of ballet classicism. You could know nothing about dance and learn from this season much about the forms of ballet and how they have changed. Audiences perusing the lineups will assume the season’s focus will be on choreography. It has started with the first of two Petipa anthologies and will include a Fokine, a Balanchine and a Forsythe program.

...

This Petipa program will be performed again Thursday; the Kirov season runs through April 20 at City Center, 131 West 55th Street, Manhattan; (212) 581-1212 or citycenter.org.
