Apollo, one of George Balanchine‘s early masterpieces, filmed in Montreal in 1968 the cast included a very young Suzanne Farrell, Peter Martins, Marnee Morris, and Karin Von Aroldingen.
Farrell was 22 years old here and Martins was 21. The gorgeous red head, Linda Merrill plays “Leto” Apollo’s mother. Balanchine was very interested in her and gave her many leading roles in the company. She didn’t stay too long unfortunately.
