Poster advertising the Harkness Ballet, a company founded by Standard Oil heiress Rebekah Harkness in 1964. From early in the company's history, with George Skibine as artistic director. The Harness Ballet performed primarily in Europe before opening its own theater in New York, with a company including Alvin Ailey and other avant-garde choreographers. A scarce piece of ephemera from this important troupe.
