The Ballet Theatre of Maryland, Maryland’s premier professional ballet company, announces a thrilling array of works for its 40th Anniversary Grande Season Finale at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis, April 26 & 27.
The program features two Stravinsky works: The great Russian fairytale classic, The Firebird; and Savoyan Nights, a progressive jazz version Stravinsky’s music played live by the Army’s Jazz Ambassadors. The Firebird is Stravinsky’s most famous work and tells the story of the noble Prince Ivan as he rescues the beautiful Princess Tsarevna from the clutches of an evil sorceress with help of a magical bird of fire. Nicole Kelsch stars as the Firebird, with Lynne Bellinger as the Princess, Corinne Elkins as the sorceress, and Stephaen Hood as Prince Ivan. Savoyan Nights, choreographed by Artistic Director Dianna Cuatto, brings to life memories of the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem during the height of its glory with music from The Rite of Spring arranged by Darryl Brenzel.
Also, on the program is the popular neo-classical work, Italian Symphonette set to Mendelssohn’s music, and Synchronicity, another brand, new work choreographed by Dianna Cuatto set to excerpts from New York composer Kevin Keller’s award-winning album: The Day I Met Myself. “It will take you on an emotional journey of coincidences through surreal landscapes,” Cuatto explains.
