Ballet and Beyond
october 24, 2020
2:00 and 7:30 pm
Dazzling classical ballet bumps up against a contemporary social issue in this final program of the season. Bridging the past and the present, DANB opens with the bravura classic Don Quixote Suite, continues with dramatic contemporary works and closes with Judy Skinner’s mesmerizing Oceana, a creation illuminating the crisis of ocean pollution. With film created by Lisa Crawley and music by Resident Composer Stella Sung, the ballet also has a phone app so that audience members can access AND play sounds of sea animals during the ballet. Educational as well as entertaining. Choreographers and dancers work their magic and create an evening never to be forgotten. Family friendly.
