| || ||Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra
October 2–7, 2012
It is difficult to imagine an artistic legacy more closely tied to the heart of the classical ballet tradition than that of the Mariinsky Ballet. The legendary company (which has reclaimed its original name following decades of being know by its Soviet name, the Kirov) has given the world some of the greatest dancers and choreographers in the history of the art over its 250 years.
For its highly anticipated return to the Center, the company will perform one of the most famous ballets, Swan Lake.
Choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov (1895)
Revised choreography and stage direction: Konstantin Sergeyev (1950)
Music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky
| || ||Trey McIntyre Project |
including World Premiere commission on the Arts Plaza
The Center is thrilled to welcome the return of Trey McIntyre Project for an innovative residency that will bring dance to ours stage, our Arts Plaza and throughout the community as part of a unique creative endeavor uniting cultures through dance.
The journey of this project begins in May 2012 as TMP will perform throughout China, South Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam as a Cultural Ambassador through DanceMotion USAsm, a collaboration between the U.S. State Department and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Upon returning home, TMP will be joined by a dance company from Asia, personally selected during its tour, to create the collaborative performance piece which will be danced at the Center. This final work will use dance to fuse American and Asian influences, celebrating artistic differences and similarities, and bridging cultural divides.
The program will conclude with a site-specific, multi-media performance on the Arts Plaza, building on the company's acclaimed 2009 Center premiere.
| || ||Hamburg Ballet
John Neumeier, Director / Chief Choreographer
February 8–10, 2013
The Little Mermaid
Under the leadership of John Neumeier, Hamburg Ballet has developed into one of the most exquisite companies in the world. His thoughtful story adaptations have shed new light onto well known tales as he seamlessly combines movement, music and visual imagery
His modern but timeless interpretation of The Little Mermaid, created to mark the 200th birthday of Hans Christian Andersen, is a dramatic tale that contrasts the simplicity of underwater life with the worldly nature of the humans. As she travels through both worlds, the title character endures torment because of her love for the prince before ultimately triumphing through her own strength.
Choreography, staging and design by John Neumeier
Music by Lera Auerbach
| || ||Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg |
Boris Eifman, Artistic Director
For his newest ballet, Boris Eifman has once again been drawn to a famous story of creative genius, inspiration and passion. Rodin, which premiered in 2012 to mark the company's 35th anniversary, is based on the life of the famed French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) and his turbulent relationship with his mistress and muse, Camille Claudel. Set to music by Saint-Saëns, Massenet and Ravel, Rodin is a tale of artistic inspiration and the terrible price of genius.
