Mearns's Turn

Posted June 19, 2013

Sara Mearns in Rehearsal

“I think if you are a true artist, passionate about your art form, who can’t imagine life without it, you are kissed with this curse of always trying to do your art form justice, create the beauty it deserves. It’s our job as performing artists to give the audience a taste of that passion — to let them fall into that world,” says New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns, who is featured in this month’s Playbill as we gear up for A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky  at the end of June. Learn how she’ll be transforming into an Ice Fairy and a marionette when she appears with Alan Gilbert and the Philharmonic.
