Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida Opens the 2013-2014 Season at Broward Center and Aventura Arts
Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, nurtured and grown under the direction of Ballet Master Vladimir Issaev since October of 1997, leaps into its 16th Season starting October 12, 2013 with Pentimento, and Firebird and ends with their Spring Gala on May 3 and 4, 2014.
Pentimento, created by choreographer Vicente Nebrada, includes excerpts from Johann Sebastian Bach's Four Suites for Orchestra. The ballet is a bold, abstract work that is based on the art form of painting called pentimento. The artist changes his or her mind about the composition of his painting during the process of painting, and then changes it. This ballet applies the same approach to dance: the concept for the dances and costumes change throughout the performance. Using masks, flowing fabric and creative lighting to create a mystical effect, the piece develops through layers of movement, color and light. Adding to mystical effects is original costuming by Cristina Gianinni.
On the same evening and back by popular demand, the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida presents Firebird, with Stravinsky's brilliant score that tells the tale of a magical firebird who helps a heroic prince rescue a beautiful princess. With exuberant dancing, magical special effects, fantastic costumes designed by Jorge Gallardo, and innovating special multimedia effects by www.DigitalMediaDesigns.net this magnificent production will enthrall and enchant audiences.
Shows are October 12th and 13th at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts - Amaturo Theater; and October 19th & 20th at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center
In addition to these main productions, Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida will also make educational appearances in various schools in both Broward and Miami-Dade counties, as they continue to excite young children about the importance and enjoyment of the classical art of ballet in the education outreach program.
