GHOSTS OF THE BALLET to Haunt Centenary Stage, Oct 27

Related: Ghosts of the Ballet, Centenary Stage Company

Set the tone for a frightfully good Halloween weekend with New Jersey Ballet's newest edition of "Ghosts of the Ballet" which contains a variety of spooky classical and contemporary pieces. On Saturday, October 27th at 8 pm, The Centenary Stage Company will host the New Jersey Ballet at the David and Carol Lackland Center's Sitnik Theatre. The state's premiere dance company will fill the theatre with sprits, souls and saints on this late October evening.

Contemporary works include the dramatic Death and the Maiden, set to Franz Schubert's haunting quartet in D minor. Also from recent vintage are the ballet based on Edgar Alan Poe's eerie poem, The Raven, and a wild night of mistaken identity in an otherworldly ballroom, Masquerade. The classical portions of the evening will feature a revival of the New Jersey Ballet's hypnotic Kingdom of the Shades from La Bayadere, and the epitome of evil in a tutu and tiara, BLACK SWAN pas de deux.

Look for new faces as dancers from Europe, Asia and South America make their NJ Ballet debuts. Barbara Gilford of The New York Times New Jersey Weekly wrote, "New Jersey Ballet is an assemblage of professional dancers who embody the highest standards of technique and artistry and they are ours!"
