This trilogy of epic ballets with live music is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
First is Brahms Trio. This famous musical trio will be performed by violinist Lauren Haseltine, pianist Mikhail Berestnev, and horn Kevin Haseltine accompanied by a lavish, romantic production with choreography by Katie Puder and costumes by Ann Boyce.
Next is George Balanchine’s Concerto Barocco. One of Balanchine’s greatest masterpieces, Concerto Barocco is music made visible as two elegant yet dynamic lead ballerinas each depict one of the instrumental soloists in Bach’s virtuosic double violin concerto.
Closing the evening is a world premiere by Katie Puder with music by Bela Bartok – a synthesis of folk music, classicism, and modernism.
