As summer gets going, you might want to explore some of the local entertainment offerings. Start with the Center! We have two esteemed dance companies taking over Segerstrom Hall. Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg returns in June with a company classic, Red Giselle. Inspired by the life of the great Russian ballerina Olga Spessivtseva, Red Giselle is one of Eifman's best known productions, with a sweeping narrative expressed through the lens of Spessivtseva's most celebrated role. This is not to be confused with July's engagement of La Scala Ballet's Giselle, one of the most romantic of all the great classical ballets. Making his Center debut in the role of the prince is Roberto Bolle. This cultural ambassador for Italian art makes every leap and turn look effortless, and he is praised around the world for his flawless technique and partnering skills. In this issue Joseph Carman interviews Bolle and finds out why he excels at such roles and his world offstage. The Center also welcomes the Tony® -winning Broadway show Fun Home. As the main character tells the story of her life at three different ages, it's clear that, whatever the specific ups and downs, Fun Home is about a universal human experience that everyone can relate to. We also have an overview of the new seasons of the Cabaret and Family series. Please join us for some amazing performances.
