The highlight for Dance & Dessert 2017 is the company premiere of La Bayadere – Act III. This famous "Kingdom of the Shades" scene in the great tradition of Russian-style classical ballet is meticulously staged by Assistant Artistic Director Chieko Imada.
Other repertoire includes:
Hi Jinks – long-time Ballet Tucson associate Sam Watson stages his riotous comedy ballet.
Cascades – guest choreographer Kim Robards of the Denver-based Kim Robards Dance Company reprises her signature work; a dynamic contemporary ensemble piece performed with effervescence and spirit by Ballet Tucson's company of dancers.
Monster – Ballet Tucson Soloist Dancer Connolly Strombeck debuts this new work set to the quirky music of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. Strombeck has been a participant of Ballet Tucson's ChoreoLab in which this contemporary piece found its genesis. ChoreoLab was launched this season to nurture the next generation of choreographers and artistic directors. This will be the first choreographic selection chosen from ChoreoLab for main stage performances.
The company's Ballet Master Daniel Precup will contribute several short neo-classical offerings to round out the wide range of repertoire for the 2017 Spring Concert.
