Abhinaya Dance Company presents their special spring concert selection -- Sadhika -- a celebration of Artistic Director Mythili Kumar's 50 years (and then some) spent dedicated to dance. Since 1962, Kumar has been learning, performing and teaching Bharatanatyam, an ancient style of Indian classical dance. Performing since she was 11 years old, and only recently returned from a performing tour of temples and cities of India, this special presentation will feature many of her signature, critically acclaimed choreographic works. Kumar's solo performance will be preceded by a special work from other Abhinaya Company dancers. 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.
