Beauty and Bach
Avant Chamber Ballet returns to Moody Performance Hall with three ballets and live music: George Balanchine’s Concerto Barocco, Katie Cooper’s Appalachian Spring, and Aurora’s Wedding.
Concerto Barocco will be staged by famed dancer-turned coach Nilas Martins. It is regarded as one of George Balanchine’s best and most musical ballets performed to Bach’s Double Violin Concerto.
Appalachian Spring is a new ballet created for Avant Chamber Ballet by artistic director Katie Cooper danced to Copland’s iconic American score.
Aurora’s Wedding closes the evening with all the elegance and charm of Sleeping Beauty Act 3. The characters of fairy tales celebrate the marriage of Princess Aurora and her Prince Charming with Tchaikovsky’s best known ballet score.
Closing the Avant Chamber Ballet 2017-18 season is Moving Music – an exciting evening of new works and great masterpieces featuring George Balanchine’s Valse Fantaisie, Paul Mejia’s Serenade in A, Christopher Wheeldon’s The American pas de deux and Women’s Choreography Project.
For the fourth year of Women’s Choreography Project, Avant Chamber Ballet is commissioning two new works from female choreographers. One will be a winner of an international application process to be announced in the fall and the second is a new work from Bruce Wood Dance Project’s artistic director Kimi Nikaidoh.
