Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it's as a solo artist that he really shines. One of the most successful musical acts of the 1980s, he kicked off a string of No. 1 hits with his debut "Truly," and continued to rule the charts with smash singles like the Caribbean-flavored "All Night Long," "Endless Love" with Diana Ross, "Hello" and "Say You, Say Me," which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Now the five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at Wolf Trap. He'll perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through 2012's Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become giant sing-alongs, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the '80s had to offer. Sharing the stage with Richie will be CeeLo Green. Known for his solo career as well as being a part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, Green's recorded numerous hits and is most widely recognized for the chart-topping singles "Crazy," "Forget You" and for serving as a judge/coach on The Voice.

The pre-show discussion with the Artistic Director was very interesting regarding the Company's formation, mission, dance style, and intended legacy. The dancing and choreography were fantastic! The music to the second piece was oppressive and greatly detracted from the wonderful dancers' performance! For the third piece on the Samba
again we loved the dancing, but this type of music does not lend itself to classical ballet. I lived in Brazil for many years and felt the music was a mismatch. Overall a great experience with a few musical adjustments to be made.

This is a fabulous ballet company. The dancers are well trained, fluid, lovely. Interestingly, the chorus of local tree frogs and cicadas added a lovely atmospheric quality to the music of the middle piece, "Last". I wish Wolf Trap scheduled...continued
