A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Blixen

Royal Danish Ballet Copenhagen Stage

The Danish author Karen Blixen was better known as Isak Dinesen, until the 1985 film adaption of her memoir, Out of Africa, was released. Now she’s the subject of a full-length ballet, Blixen, which follows her from childhood to marriage to Africa, and from dashing Denys Finch Hatton to fame in old age. Her mantra: “All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them.” The score is shaped from music by Debussy, and the choreographer is Gregory Dean. —L.J.
