WINTER CONCERT

Leo Rich Theater

ALLEGRO BRILLANTE

BALLET TUCSON PREMIERE
Choreography by George Balanchine
Music by Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky

Set to Tschaikovsky’s beautiful Third Piano Concerto, Allegro Brillante is characterized by what Maria Tallchief (the ballerina on whom the bravura leading role was created) calls “an expansive Russian romanticism.” The music’s vigorous pace makes the steps appear even more difficult, but the ballet relies on strong dancing, precise timing, and breadth of gesture.

Balanchine said, “It contains everything I know about the classical ballet in 13 minutes.”

Presented with permission by the George Balanchine Trust.

BORDERLAND

BALLET TUCSON PREMIERE
Choreography by Price Suddarth
Music by Johann Sebastian Bach

Borderland is the state of being where the mind is caught between two realms– awake and asleep. The ballet opens on four dancers, as if from a dream, emerging out of the darkness. In following the unpredictable path of a dream, they travel back and forth between hauntingly silent tranquility and explosively manic tension. The work invites the viewer to remove themselves from the predictable and immerse themselves instead into this rapidly changing experience.

HIMIKO

WORLD PREMIERE
Choreography by Chieko Imada
Music by Yusuke Nakanishi performed live by Duo Chinoiserie
In partnership with the

Ballet Tucson’s Associate Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer Chieko Imada creates another stellar world premiere work in partnership with the Tucson Desert Song Festival, sharing the legend of Japanese Queen Himiko.

ROMEO AND JULIET PAS DE DEUX

Music by Sergei Prokofiev

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep; the more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite. – Juliet

Experience the most celebrated moment of the world’s greatest love story just in time for Valentine’s Day: the iconic balcony scene from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet brought to life through an exquisite classical ballet pas de deux.
