Now Playing Onstage in Boise - Week of 2/09/2014 RAYMONDA'S WEDDING / SCHEHERAZADE / TCHAIKOVSKY WALTZES
Morrison Center
Raymonda's Wedding Raymonda, first performed in 1898 with music by Alexander Glazunov, is considered Petipa's swan song, the last great ballet of the Imperial Era. George Balanchine called it "some of the finest ballet music we have." Raymonda's Wedding is the Third Act of this monumental work and features sophisticated and multi-layered classical dancing with a particular Hungarian flair. Stunning solos and grand pas de deux for 9 couples make this beautiful ballet as opulent as the Russian jewels of Faberge. Scheherazade Scheherazade, is one of the glories of symphonic music, based on the 1,001 Arabian Night's tales. After their first night, Scheherazade, who is well read in all the literature, philosophy and science, offers to tell the Sultan a story. The Sultan agrees and so she begins… each night, the Sultan spares her life in order to hear another story. By the end of 1,001 nights and after Scheherazade has exhausted all of her stories, the Sultan has fallen in love with her, spares her life and makes her his queen. Tchaikovsky Waltzes The world premiere of Peter Anastos' Tchaikovsky Waltzes is a large suite of dances with many faceted emotions, from tragedy and sadness to the joys of the countryside, the magic of childhood and the blazing brilliance of a Russian Ball. Waltzes from The Sleeping Beauty, from the operas and orchestra suites, from string quartets and piano music, this is a tribute to Tchaikovsky's genius for the waltz.
