The world-famous Joffrey Ballet concludes its season with a mixed repertory program of three sensual works. The centerpiece of the program is a world premiere by San Francisco choreographer Val Caniparoli, whom Dance
magazine called a choreographer of "uncommon ability and rare dramatic vision." Rooted in classical ballet but also incorporating modern and other forms of dance, Caniparoli's Incantations
is set to a meditative score of the same name by Russian composer Alexandre Rabinovitch-Barakovsky. The piece's continuous movement is evocative of human spirituality, mysticism and prayer. In the Night
is Jerome Robbins' ode to romance in the form of three passionate pas de deux, set to Frédéric Chopin's piano nocturnes, that follow the very different relationships of three couples. And the Joffrey also welcomes the return of Edwaard Liang's critically acclaimed Age of Innocence
. Taking inspiration from the characters of Jane Austin's novels, who struggle to balance their passions with the social confines of their time, the work is set to the music of Philip Glass and Thomas Newman.
