Over the years we have introduced Triangle audiences to 22 Balanchine ballets, and this year the lineup is highlighted by The Four Temperaments.
Master Composers: Music for Dance, March 5-22, 2015
During the past fifteen plus seasons, Robert Weiss has been inspired to create new work to several of the most famous scores in the musical canon – Handel’s Messiah, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Grieg’s Piano Concerto and just recently, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, among others. Next spring, Weiss and Raffael will create an evening inspired by the dance music of the great composers including Mozart, Bach and Beethoven.
Swan Lake, April 16-19, 2015
