Verb Ballets has announced the addition of a new show to the season series. The new program added to the season; Verb Goes Electric with the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, will run March 21- 23, 2013 at Cleveland Public Theatre during the 2013 DanceWorks Series.

"We are excited to collaborate with Cleveland Chamber Symphony, a grammy winning symphony, to explore contemporary American music. This show speaks to Verb's purpose to support and foster emerging talent," said Director, Dr. Margaret Carlson.

The newly added show will fuse dance and electronic music, March 21- 23, 2013, at 7pm at Cleveland Public Theatre. Verb Goes Electric with the Cleveland Chamber Symphony builds on the creative talent of local artists to create new collaborative work. Four to six young and emerging composers will be selected to present new electronic music that explores and pushes the boundaries of contemporary American music. The dancers of Verb Ballets will then take the new score and challenge and explore how to move in the sound evolution of the musical language.

Two other remaining main stage performances for the 2012-13 season include February 23, 2013, at 8pm at The Breen Center for the Performing Arts and April 18-20, 2013, at 7pm at Cleveland Public Theatre's DanceWorks '13 Series.

Reflect upon an evening of work with Chung-Fu Chang on Saturday, February 23, 2013, at 8pm at The Breen Center for the Performing Arts. Chang creates an evening of work on Verb Ballets to share a story about how his identity has evolved through his presence in contemporary societies with a distinctive fusion of the East and West. The evening will also include a new work about a story of loss, choreographed by Richard Dickinson and set to the masterful and haunting music of Strauss' Four Last Songs.

Single tickets $28-$10 are available by calling the Verb Ballets office at 216-397-3757 or online at www.verbballets.org. The Breen Center for the Performing Arts is located at 2008 W. 30th St. Cleveland, OH 44113. For more information visit www.verbballets.org.

Verb Ballets returns to Cleveland Public Theatre April 18-20, 2013, at 7pm with an evening work featuring a modern interpretation of The Rite of Spring choreographed by Richard Dickinson. The new ballet titled, The Rite of Spring: The Bride Unseen, reinvents the story of pagan sacrifice as the bride surrenders her dreams to appease her family and succumbs to the pressure of an arranged marriage. The ballet explores the interpersonal relationships of a quirky family and the influence they play in the family paradigm. Someone will be sacrificed. Who, is the question?
