New York Theatre Ballet
8 – 10PM
New York Theatre Ballet will perform Legends & Visionaries 2015 from June 18-20, 2015 at Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street, NYC. Performances: Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm. Tickets are $20 ($15 for Danspace members), and are available online at www.danspaceproject.org or by calling OvationTix/TheaterMania at 866.811.4111.
New York Theatre Ballet will perform Richard Alston’s Such Longing, Frederick Ashton’s Capriole Suite, the World Premiere of Gemma Bond’s The Assembly, a new, as-yet-untitled work by David Parker, and Antony Tudor’s Dark Elegies.
Richard Alston’s Such Longing is danced to the music of Chopin, not pretty waltzes or the great virtuoso fireworks but achingly beautiful meditations from his Nocturnes and Etudes. Filled with longing for Chopin’s Polish homeland, this lush and lyrical music floods through tender duets and introspective solos for two couples. Frederick Ashton’s Capriole Suite will be performed by the full company.
