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.

An excellent,engaging chamber orchestra from Quebec returning to the Harris with a program which also featured force of nature and Metropolitan Opera star mezzo soprano Stephanie Blythe,in works by Handel,Bach,Telemann,Haydn with an encore by Blythe of an aria from Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice,which she has performed at the MET,including in MET HD LIVE.Les Violons du Roy is always most welcome and the concert was met with standing ovation by an enthusiastic audience,which deserves to be larger the next time Les Violons performs,which we hope will be next season at the Harris..
