Mikhail Nikolayevich Baryshnikov (Russian: Михаи́л
Никола́евич Бары́шников, Latvian: Mihails
Barišņikovs; born January 27, 1948), nicknamed "Misha" (Russian
diminutive of the name "Mikhail"), is a
and American dancer,
choreographer, and actor.
He is often cited alongside Vaslav Nijinsky,
Vladimir Vasiliev as one of the greatest ballet dancers in history.
After a promising start in the Mariinsky
in Leningrad, Mikhail
Baryshnikov defected to
in 1974 for more opportunities in
western dance. After freelancing with many companies, he joined the
New York City
as a principal dancer to learn George
Balanchine's style of movement. He then danced with the American
Theatre, where he later became artistic director.
has spearheaded many of his own artistic projects
and has been associated in particular with promoting modern dance,
premiering dozens of new works, including many of his own.[citation

television has helped him become probably the most widely recognized
contemporary ballet dancer.
In 1977, he received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best
nomination for his work as "Yuri
Kopeikine" in the film The Turning Point. He also had a significant
role in the last season of the television series

Mikhail Baryshnikov was born in Riga, then Latvian SSR,
now Latvia. His parents were Russians: Alexandra (a dressmaker;
née Kiselyova) and Nikolay Baryshnikov (an engineer). His mother
committed suicide, when he was in his early teens.
He began his ballet studies in
Riga in 1960, at the age of 11. In
1964, he entered the Vaganova School, in what was then in Leningrad
(now St. Petersburg). Baryshnikov soon won the top prize in the junior
division of the Varna International
Ballet Competition. He joined the
Mariinsky Ballet, which was then called the Kirov Ballet, in 1967,
dancing the "Peasant" pas de deux in Giselle.
Recognizing Mikhail Baryshnikov's talent, in particular the strength
of his stage presence and purity of his classical technique, several
Soviet choreographers, including Oleg Vinogradov, Konstantin Sergeyev,
Igor Tchernichov, and Leonid Jakobson, choreographed ballets for him.
Baryshnikov made signature roles of Jakobson's 1969 virtuosic Vestris
along with an intensely emotional Albrecht in Giselle. While still
Soviet Union, he was called by
New York Times
New York Times critic Clive
Barnes "the most perfect dancer I have ever seen."
Defection to Canada
On June 29, 1974, while on tour in
Canada with the Mariinsky Ballet,
Mikhail Baryshnikov defected, requesting political asylum in Toronto,
and joined the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. He also announced to the
dance world he would not go back to the USSR. He later stated that
Christina Berlin, an American friend of his, helped engineer his
defection during his 1970 tour of London. His first televised
performance after coming out of temporary seclusion in
Canada was with
Canada in La Sylphide. He then went on to the
United States. In December 1975, he and his dance partner Natalia
Makarova featured prominently in an episode of the
Principal dancer with the American
From 1974 to 1978,
Mikhail Baryshnikov was a principal dancer with the
Ballet Theatre (ABT), where he partnered with Gelsey
Principal dancer with the New York City Ballet
Mikhail Baryshnikov performed with the New York City
Ballet as a
principal dancer for 15 months from 1978 to 1979.
On July 8, 1978, he made his debut with George Balanchine's and
Lincoln Kirstein's company at Saratoga Springs, appearing as Franz in
Coppélia. On Oct. 12, 1979, Mr. Baryshnikov danced the role of the
Poet in Mr. Balanchine's ballet, “La Sonnambula” with the City
Ballet at the Kennedy Center in Washington.
This was Mikhail Baryshnikov's last performance with New York City
Ballet due to a tendinitis and other injuries. His tenure there
coincided with a period of ill health for him that followed an earlier
heart attack and culminated in successful heart surgery in June 1979.
Mikhail Baryshnikov left the company because he was going to leave
anyway to become artistic director of American
Ballet Theater on 1
September 1980, and now needed time off because of his injuries.
The parting was, by all accounts, a friendly one.
On stage as a dancer
Mikhail Baryshnikov worked with
George Balanchine and as a regular
guest artist with the Royal Ballet.
Mikhail Baryshnikov also toured with ballet and modern dance companies
around the world for fifteen months. Several roles were created for
him, including roles Opus 19: The Dreamer (1979), by Jerome Robbins,
Rhapsody (1980), by Frederick Ashton, and Other Dances with Natalia
Makarova by Jerome Robbins.
Artistic director of the American
Mikhail Baryshnikov returned to ABT in September 1980 as an artistic
director, a position he held for nearly a decade. He still performed
as a dancer as well. In 1989, he quit in anger after they fired
his right-hand man Charles France.
On July 3, 1986, he became a naturalized citizen of the United
States. From 1990 to 2002, Baryshnikov was artistic director of
the White Oak Dance Project, a touring company he co-founded with Mark
Morris. In 2003, he won the
Prix Benois de la Danse for lifetime
achievement. In 2005 he launched the
Baryshnikov Arts Center
Baryshnikov Arts Center in New
York. In 2012, Baryshnikov received the Vilcek Prize in Dance.
On April 27, 2017, Baryshnikov was granted citizenship by the Republic
Latvia for extraordinary merits. The application to the Latvian
parliament along with a letter from Baryshnikov in which he expressed
his wish to become a citizen of what today constitutes his native
country was submitted on December 21, 2016. He stated that the
decision was based on memories of his first 16 years living in Latvia,
which provided the basis for the rest of his life. "It was there that
my exposure to the arts led me to discover my future destiny as a
Riga still serves as a place where I find artistic
inspiration," Baryshnikov wrote in the letter to the Latvian
Reputation as a dancer
Baryshnikov's talent was obvious from his youth, but being 5 ft
5in (165 cm) tall, maybe 5 ft 6in (168 cm),
thus, shorter than most dancers, he could not tower over a ballerina
en pointe and was therefore relegated to secondary parts. More
frustrating to him, the
Soviet dance world hewed closely to
19th-century traditions and deliberately shunned the creative
choreographers of the West, whose work Baryshnikov glimpsed in
occasional tours and films. Mikhail Baryshnikov's main goal in leaving
Soviet Union was to work with these innovators.
In the first two years after his defection, he danced for no fewer
than 13 different choreographers, including Jerome Robbins, Glen
Tetley, Alvin Ailey, and Twyla Tharp.
"It doesn't matter if every ballet is a success or not," he told New
York Times dance critic Anna Kisselgoff in 1976, "The new experience
gives me a lot." He cited his fascination with the ways Ailey mixed
classical and modern technique and his initial discomfort when Tharp
insisted he incorporate eccentric personal gestures in the dance.
In 1978, he abandoned his freelance career to spend 18 months as a
principal of the New York City Ballet, run by the legendary George
"Mr. B," as he was known, rarely welcomed guest artists and had
refused to work with both Nureyev and Makarova. Baryshnikov's decision
to devote his full attentions to the New York company stunned the
dance world. Balanchine never created a new work for Baryshnikov,
though he did coach the young dancer in his distinctive style, and
Baryshnikov triumphed in such signature roles as Apollo, The Prodigal
Son, and Rubies.
Jerome Robbins did, however, create
Opus 19/The Dreamer for
Baryshnikov and NYCB favorite Patricia McBride.
In 1980, he became Artistic Director of American
Ballet Theatre and
his role changed from performer to director. However, in 1989, he left
when the company went behind his back and fired his second-in-command
Nevertheless, Mikhail Baryshnikov's fascination with the new has stood
him in good stead. As he observed, "It doesn't matter how high you
lift your leg. The technique is about transparency, simplicity and
making an earnest attempt.”
The White Oak Project was formed to create original work for older
dancers. In a run ending just short of his 60th birthday in 2007, he
appeared in a production of four short plays by
Samuel Beckett staged
by avant-garde director JoAnne Akalaitis.
Mikhail Baryshnikov was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of
Arts and Sciences in 1999. In 2000, he was awarded the National
Medal of Arts.
He has received three Honorary Degrees: on May 11, 2006, from New York
University; on September 28, 2007, from Shenandoah Conservatory of
Shenandoah University; and on May 23, 2008, from Montclair State
For the duration of the 2006 Summer,
Mikhail Baryshnikov went on tour
with Hell's Kitchen Dance, which was sponsored by the Baryshnikov Arts
Center. Featuring works by
Baryshnikov Arts Center
Baryshnikov Arts Center residents Azsure
Barton and Benjamin Millepied, the company toured the United States
In late August 2007, Baryshnikov performed Mats Ek's Place (original
Swedish title, Ställe) with
Ana Laguna at Dansens Hus in Stockholm.
Mikhail Baryshnikov has performed in
Israel three times: in 1996, when
he appeared with the
White Oak Dance Project at the Roman amphitheater
in Caesarea; in 2010, when he performed with Ana Laguna; and in 2011,
when he starred in nine performances of "In Paris" at the Suzanne
Dellal Center in Tel Aviv. In an interview to
Haaretz newspaper in
2011, he expressed his opposition to artistic boycotts of

Liza Minnelli in Baryshnikov on Broadway, 1980
Mikhail Baryshnikov made his American television dancing debut in
1976, on the PBS program In Performance Live from Wolf Trap. The
program is currently distributed on
DVD by Kultur Video.
During the Christmas season of 1977,
CBS brought his highly acclaimed
Ballet Theatre production of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet The
Nutcracker to television, and it has remained to this day the most
popular and most often shown television production of the work, at
least in the U.S. In addition to Baryshnikov in the title role, Gelsey
Kirkland, Alexander Minz, and many members of the American Ballet
Theatre also starred. The production was videotaped in Canada. After
being shown a few times by CBS, it moved to PBS, where it was shown
annually every Christmas season for many years, and still is by some
PBS stations. It was first released on
DVD by MGM/UA. The
DVD of the performance, issued by
Kultur Video in 2004,
is a bestseller during the Christmas season. The
DVD has now been
released in the UK by Digital Classics.
Although Tchaikovsky's ballet has been presented on TV many times in
many different versions, the Baryshnikov version is one of only two to
be nominated for an Emmy Award. The other one was Mark Morris' "The
Hard Nut", Morris's intentionally exaggerated and satirical version of
Mikhail Baryshnikov also performed in two Emmy-winning television
specials, one on ABC and one on CBS, in which he danced to music from
Broadway and Hollywood, respectively. During the 1970s and 1980s, he
appeared many times with American
Ballet Theatre on Live from Lincoln
Center and Great Performances. Over the years, he has also appeared on
several telecasts of the Kennedy Center Honors.
Baryshnikov performed in his first film role soon after arriving in
New York. He portrayed the character Yuri Kopeikine, a famous Russian
womanizing ballet dancer, in the 1977 film The Turning Point, for
which he received an Oscar nomination. He co-starred with Gregory
Isabella Rossellini in the 1985 film White Nights,
choreographed by Twyla Tharp; and he was featured in the 1987 film
Dancers. On television, in the last season of Sex and the City, he
played a Russian artist, Aleksandr Petrovsky, who woos Carrie Bradshaw
relentlessly and takes her to Paris. He co-starred in Company Business
(1991) with Gene Hackman.
On November 2, 2006,
Mikhail Baryshnikov and chef
Alice Waters were
featured on an episode of the Sundance Channel's original series
Iconoclasts. The two have a long friendship. They discussed their
lifestyles, sources of inspiration, and social projects that make them
unique. During the program,
Alice Waters visited Baryshnikov's Arts
Center in New York City. The Hell's Kitchen Dance tour brought him to
Berkeley to visit Alice Waters' restaurant Chez Panisse. On July 17,
2007, the PBS
News Hour with Jim Lehrer
News Hour with Jim Lehrer featured a profile of
Baryshnikov and his Arts Center. Baryshnikov appears, uncredited, in
the 2014 film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit as Interior Minister
In a continuation of his interest in modern dance, Mikhail Baryshnikov
appeared in 2015 in a three-and-a-half minute commercial for the
clothing designer Rag & Bone along with the street dance artist
Lil Buck with both performing dance roles.
On stage as an actor
Mikhail Baryshnikov is a performer in avant-garde theater. His
breakthrough performance in Broadway was back in 1989 when he played
Gregor Samsa in Metamorphosis, an adaption of Franz Kafka's novel by
the same name. His debut earned him a Tony award.
In 2004, he appeared in Forbidden Christmas or The Doctor And The
Patient at New York City's Lincoln Center, and in 2007 in Beckett
Shorts at New York Theatre Workshop.
On April 11–21, 2012,
Mikhail Baryshnikov starred in a new play
directed by Dmitry Krymov, titled In Paris. The play was presented in
the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center, at the Broad Stage.
His co-star was Anna Sinyakina.
He then appeared in the stage adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Man in a
Case. As he said:
"I grew up reading Chekhov's stories and plays. I have wanted to
explore a Chekhov story for the stage for some time and I'm delighted
to bring Man in a Case to Berkeley Rep. Both tales are about solitary
men and their self-imposed restrictions. We know very little about the
character in the first story, 'Man in a Case,' except that he teaches
classical Greek and he's kind of eccentric and conservative. But then
something happens to him that is unexpected. The second story, 'About
Love,' provides an arresting contrast to the first work. At their core
both stories are about love. And I think it's a romantic show in many
respects that is perfect for Berkeley Rep's audience."
On April 21, 2015, The
New York Times
New York Times reported that Baryshnikov was
scheduled to perform a reading of the Nobel Laureate poet Joseph
Brodsky in Baryshnikov's native
Riga in 2015. The performance was
called “Brodsky/Baryshnikov,” was performed in the original
Russian, and had its premiere in
Riga on Oct. 15, 2015. Its
international tour began in
Tel Aviv in January 2016 and it was later
staged in New York City in March, 2016, still in the original Russian.
Mr. Baryshnikov met Mr. Brodsky in 1974, soon after the poet had been
forced by the
Soviet authorities to leave his home country and had
moved to the United States, and remained close to him until his
(Brodsky's) death in 1996."
Baryshnikov has a daughter, Aleksandra 'Shura' Baryshnikova (born
1981), from his relationship with actress Jessica Lange. When
Baryshnikov and Lange met, he spoke very little English; they
communicated in French instead. He eventually learned
English by watching television.
Baryshnikov is in a long-term relationship with former ballerina Lisa
Rinehart. They have three children together: Peter (born July 7,
1989), Anna (born May 22, 1992), and Sofia (born May 24, 1994). Though
Larry King in 2002 that he did not "believe in marriage in the
conventional way", he and Rinehart legally married in 2006.
