The gorgeous look and feel of Ballet Preljocaj's Snow White will transport you to a time and place usually found only in fairy tales. With dazzling costumes by renowned fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier, a romantic score by Gustav Mahler, and 26 amazing dancers showcasing contemporary choreography, this romantic ballet brings the Grimm Brothers' classic story to life before your eyes. The famous fairy tale has as much meaning to adults as it does to children, which is why company founder Angelin Preljocaj decided to tap into the story's intense drama to create this spellbinding performance. Now at the Harris Theater, this production earned raves during its stops at Lincoln Center in New York City and the Los Angeles Music Center. Learn More

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!
