This evening with Ballet West II includes a repertory program of both classical and contemporary pieces from around the world, performed by Ballet West’s elite touring ensemble.
Raymonda Pas de Dix opens the evening. From the third act of this exciting ballet, the Pas de Dix is the swashbuckling culmination of a love triangle gone awry. The evening’s second act begins with La Vivandiere, a ballet in one act that has been performed for nearly two centuries all over the western hemisphere, and Lacrymosa, a modern dance of mourning inspired by Mozart’s Requiem, choreographed by Edward Stierle. Christina Ghiardi’s English Dances rounds out the evening, ending on an upbeat note with movement to Sir Malcolm Arnold’s light composition that was inspired by English country folk tunes.
