Take a theatrical journey along the stylistic progression of ballet's historical development in an all new, four section work by four vibrant choreographers.
Venture into the ethereal realm of Romantic era sylphs, witness the technical virtuosity of Petipa's Grand Pas de Deux & corps de ballet, experience the extreme musicality and speed of Balanchine Neoclassicism, and feel the freedom of Contemporary dance, all in one unique work, the World Premiere of Neville Dance Theatre's "Beethoven Suite".
Set to the enchanting and energetic music of Beethoven and performed by a versatile and captivating cast of accomplished dancers, this multi-section tableau is as educational as it is entertaining.
Four eclectic artists deliver up a choreographic cart of period piece entrees:
- Brenda Neville, Artistic Director of Neville Dance Theater
- Fredrick Davis*, former dancer with Dance Theatre of Harlem
- Christina Ghiardi*, School of American Ballet alumni graduate and Nevada Ballet Theatre dancer
- Nadia Vostrikov*, formerly with Boston Ballet II and recurring character of the film series Flesh & Bone
Evening also includes the revival of "Children's Corner" (2017), a neoclassical ballet in six movements for three dancers inspired by the frolicking and playful musical score, by the same name, by composer Claude Debussy. Choreographed by Nanako Kitagawa.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the
New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
