Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, under the direction of Ballet Master Vladimir Issaev ends its season with the return of Vladimir Issaev's exciting neo-classical ballet "Shostakovich Suites" and an all time favorite from Venezuelan choreographer Vicente Nebrada "Pentimento". Shostakovich Suites is an exhilarating choreographic piece by Vladimir Issaev, inspired by the music of this Russian composer who was a revolutionary in contemporary composition while suffering the brutal despotism toward talented artists during Stalin's era. "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.
