BWW Previews: ROMANCE at Merriam Theater
Three diverse movements provide a rich tapestry of dance as the Pennsylvania Ballet delivers Romance this weekend. Take an exclusive look at images from a dress rehearsal this week at the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia. The ballet described the three movements on their website as follows:
REMANSOS // NACHO DUATO // MUSIC BY ENRIQUE GRANADOS
Praised for its powerful expressivity, fluid forms, and dynamic utilization of space, Remansos is a playful modern ballet featuring three men and three women. The simplicity of the costumes, lighting, and sets - occasionally featuring the appearance of a single red rose- places the focus squarely on the beauty and dynamism of the dancers' forms.
A NICOLO FONTE WORLD PREMIERE // BY NICOLO FONTE Following the wildly popular premiere of Fonte's Grace Action at Pennsylvania Ballet in June 2015, this all-new work showcases his highly developed fusion of ideas, dance, and design.
WESTERN SYMPHONY // BY George Balanchine // MUSIC BY Hershy KayTravel back to the wild, wild West with this high-spirited and playful ballet. A captivating collection of stories links the steps, formations, and gestures with Kay's lively and familiar mix of classic orchestrations.
