The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway, the first-year student's required reading, will be interpreted in dance. The dance will be set to Albinoni’s “Adagio in G Minor,” which was famously played by Smailovic and was an inspiration for Galloway as he wrote his book. A modern dance work inspired by the image of Smailovic playing the cello amidst Sarajevo’s ruins will be performed in early December by the Washington University Dance Theatre.
