Famed for their annual Nutcracker, the acclaimed Rockville Civic Ballet's latest production boasts a trio of dances. The Last Duchess is inspired by an intriguing Robert Browning poem, in which a duke shows off a portrait of his wanton wife, insinuating that he's gotten rid of her for good. Also on the program are the works Saturday Night Social, a fun and entertaining romp set to Aaron Copland's Rodeo, and Danse D'Enesco, a folk dance-influenced piece that's described as bright and fast-moving.
