The Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida’s 15th Season will officially open on October 6th, 2012 with a contemporary program that will include Danzon, a vibrant and exciting work by guest choreographer Yanis Pikieris, with music of Arturo Marquez.
Also on the season opener program is Four Seasons – a piece with the music of Verdi (not Vivaldi) first performed at the Mariinsky Theater in Russia . The work was created by Maestro Vladimir Issaev for four couples, and each pas de deux is a showcase of the extraordinary abilities of each dancer.
Taiko, with the enchanting music of classic Japanese drumming, has been an audience favorite since 1998 when Issaev created this choreography.
The program will conclude with Fuga con Pajarillo, with the music of Aldemaro Romero and the choreography of Vladimir Issaev, which was recently presented in New York at the Latin Choreographers Festival with a resounding success. The piece first premiered in 2008 as a tribute to the famous Venezuelan composer.
These pieces will be performed by the professional dancers of the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida company where principals Kaori Fukui, Jun Tanabe, Lillian Hill, Breeana Flannery, DeeDee Rosner, Kelvin Rabines, accompanied by guest dancer Simon Sliva, have the responsibilities of the main roles.
