Living in South Orange: SOPAC hosts American Repertory Ballet

American Repertory Ballet

Friday, April 05
Tickets: $20, $30
SOPAC Members: $15, $25

Rite of Spring
Choreographed by Douglas Martin 
Music by Igor Stravinsky

Viva Vivaldi
Choreographed by Gerald Arpino 
Music by Antonio Vivaldi

New Work (Title TBA)
Choreographed by Patrick Corbin

Artistic Director Douglas Martin tackles Stravinsky’s influential and provocative score, The Rite of Spring, on the centennial of its controversial premiere, and gives the ballet’s ceremonial pagan sacrifice narrative a twist.  This ballet is at once a celebratory ode to the advent of spring and a statement on the theme of ritualistic behavior and sacrifice.  In addition, ARB will be dancing a new work by Patrick Corbin, former Joffrey Ballet dancer who is known for his athletic contemporary choreography, and Viva Vivaldi, a quick-footed ballet full of bravura and charm set to Antonio Vivaldi’s "Concerto in D for Violin, Strings and Cembalo" by famed Joffrey Ballet choreographer Gerald Arpino.
