Richmond Ballet II
State Ballet of Virginia & Excitement in Dance - Saturday, April 18, 2015
An elite group of ten professional dancers led by Richmond Ballet's own Resident Artist, Igor Antonov, the evening’s performance includes, Ancient Airs and Dances with choreography by Stoner Winslett and music by Ottorino Respighi. Premiering in 1986, Ancient Airs and Dances was the first piece choreographed by Stoner Winslett for Richmond Ballet’s professional company. In this uplifting journey, set to Italian and French lute songs orchestrated by Respighi, four couples gradually shed the masks of custom and form, exploring the true and essential emotions that reach across the generations and bind all of mankind together. Choreographer Val Caniparoli’s Swipe pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance with music by Sergei Prokofiev that features dueling violins in a mash-up of the classical and electronic music traditions. Swipe arrives with its trademark causal cool complete with intricate choreography that pulls from the world of hip-hop as well as classical dance. A pas de deux inspired on the words attributed to French choreographer, Roland Petit, when asked to comment on the possible intimacy of two famous dancers, Simply A Hug, features choreography by Malcolm Burn with music by Gabriel Fauré.
Tickets for this performance are $15.00 (advance $12.00)
