The San Jose Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of conductor Barbara J. Turner, provides the exciting live soundtrack to sjDANCEco's 12th season opener, highlighted by José Limón's 1958 Mazurkas, an emotional tribute to the Polish spirit, set to a Chopin score. San Jose's own award-winning contemporary company specializes in the work of Limón, a ground-breaking Mexican-American modern dancer and choreographer. Also on the program are Broken Memory, a 1980 work by sjDANCEco founder Gary Masters and a trio of world premieres from company choreographers and dancers Maria Basile, Heather Cooper and Hsiang-Hsiu Lin. Come early for a pre-performance discussion by Masters. Learn More
All the beauty, humor, adventure and tragedy of the frightening urgency of youth is danced to the brilliant and emotive score of Sergei Prokofiev, performed live by the Ballet Orchestra. David Guthrie’s elaborate and sumptuous sets and costumes, and Kenneth Keith’s dramatic use of light and shadow recreate the charm and danger of old Verona where star-crossed lovers are broken apart by their feuding families. Dennis Nahat’s theatrically intimate choreography grips the senses and compels us to believe again in love at first sight. This is Ballet on a grand scale with forty-five dancers, full symphony orchestra and three-acts of glorious spectacle featuring lavish masked balls, electrifying sword-fights, and secret rendezvous culminating in one of the most moving tragedies in stage history. Ballet San Jose proves that love needs no words.
