Dayton Ballet will perform a repertory collection including Vive la France, two other pieces, Onegin Waltz, and the world premieres of Sechs Tänze and Dear Booky.
Dayton Ballet will perform a repertory show that includes an energetic, neoclassical ballet called Farandole. The work is a collection of three pieces including Vive la France and two other pieces that will receive their world premiere with this performance. The performance continues with Onegin Waltz.
Then, Dayton Ballet is proud to present for the first time a work by internationally acclaimed Jirí Kylián. Sechs Tänze is a collection of six seemingly nonsensical dances, which together serve as a vehicle to illustrate both the humor and brilliance of the composer of the music, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Dayton Ballet is thrilled to welcome repetiteur Stefan Zeromski from Nederlands Dans Theater to the studio.
Following intermission Dayton Ballet will open with Prelude and Allegro, created by Karen Russo Burke, with Balanchine’s famous Jewels ballet as her inspiration. The work is set to three pieces of beautiful music.
The evening continues with Meditation de Thaïs, set to music from the opera Thaïs by French composer Jules Massenet. The music and the dance are haunting and romantic.
To close the program, Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke pays tribute to Miss Josephine and Miss Hermene Schwarz who started Dayton Ballet with the World Premiere of Dear Booky, created as a celebration of the 80th anniversary of Dayton Ballet. This beautiful ballet is a fitting homage to the very nature of the women who started such an incredible legacy in Dayton.
