All Balanchine 2018: Ballet Arizona's Annual Tribute
Ballet Arizona's artistic director Ib Andersen, a former Balanchine protégé at the New York City Ballet, is known for his "rare acuity" when it comes to re-imagining the legendary choreographer's works, according to The New York Times. Andersen's 2018 tribute to the master features three works. Prodigal Sonis a biblical parable-inspired piece that emphasizes the themes of sin and redemption. The last of Balanchine's works for Ballets Russes, it premiered in 1929, in what was to be the company's final Paris season. Symphony in Three Movements is rich with complex choreography and a dramatic score. It's one of several notable masterpieces Balanchine choreographed for the 1972 Stravinsky Festival. And La Sonnambula is quite literally a dreamworld of vibrant costumes that create the ethereal world of a beautiful sleepwalker. This annual tribute comes to the stage of Phoenix Symphony Hall this May.
