Festival Ballet Providence presents Ballets Russes Reinvented

Festival Ballet Providence presents Ballets Russes Reinvented

October 23 - 25, 2015

Masterworks of ballet, reimagined and reinvented a century later.

  Afternoon of a Faun (music: Claude Debussy, choreography: Dominic Walsh)           Le Spectre de la Rose (music: Carl-Maria Von Weber, choreography Dominic Walsh)   Swan (music: Camille Saint-Saëns, choreography: Viktor Plotnikov)                               The Firebird (music: Igor Stravinsky, choreography Mihailo Djuric)

A century ago, the “Ballets Russes,” led by visionary impresario Sergei Diaghilev, introduced the world to daring new works of dance that would set a bold new course for ballet in a rapidly changing world. The troupe helped bring together visionaries like Debussy, Nijinsky, Picasso, and Stravinsky, making them household names in the process. A century later, FBP’s “Russes Reinvented” offers fresh perspectives on three of the most prolific Ballet Russes works: the poetic Spectre de la Rose, mysterious Afternoon of a Faun, and the epic Firebird. Don’t miss a daring new perspective on groundbreaking works of dance.

Reinvented will present daring new stagings by contemporary choreographer and former Houston Ballet principal Dominic Walsh and FBP artistic director Mihailo Djuric. “All of these ballets were groundbreaking creations in their time, and helped to lay a foundation for contemporary ballet as we know it today,” said Djuric. “With these reinterpretations, we hope to pay homage to that legacy by pushing the envelope yet again,” he said.
