Ballet West's "Director's Choice" Program
With elegance, wit and theatricality, Ballet West highlights some of Artistic Director Adam Sklute's favorite works. Jirí Kylián's highly athletic and profoundly emotional Return to a Strange Land deals with love and loss, set to the evocative piano music of Leos Janácek. In 1958, modern dance pioneer Merce Cunningham created his unique Summerspace in collaboration with composer Morton Feldman and artist Robert Rauschenberg. Ballet West becomes one of a very few companies in the world to produce this fascinating exploration of movement, music and art. The program closes with British choreographer David Bintley's brilliant The Shakespeare Suite. At times intense, at times hilariously funny, the ballet is a series of pop-culture vignettes from various Shakespeare plays, set to jazz tunes by Duke Ellington.
