Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Summer Series unveils a world premiere by resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo in the same program as two company classics: internationally known choreographer William Forsythe's Quintett and Nacho Duato's Mediterranean-influenced Gnawa. Forsythe's Quintett picks up on themes of loss, hope, fear and joy heard in Gavin Bryars' 1971 composition, Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet, while Gnawa's evocative rhythms tap the Mediterranean spirit of North Africa and Duato's native Spain, with costumes by Modesto Lomba, chairman of the Spanish Fashion Designers' Association.

Martin Davids is a REMARKABLE violinist and Callipygian is an exception group. For me, they overshadowed the still-wonderful Bella Voce. The Vivaldi was excellent, as was just about everything but the Handel, which seemed generic, as it is, indeed, Handel choral music. The featured voices were in general, superb.
I have to say more about Martin Davids...I was unfamiliar with him, and as the ensemble first accompanied the chorus, he stood out - seated, having what seemed a sensuous experience with his violin and the music. In his long and virtuosic solo, he expounded on this, and his almost romantic rendering of the piece was astounding!
