With a magnificent and colorful spectacle that combines classical and neoclassical ballet, the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, conducted by Maestro Vladimir Issaev, closes its sixteenth season, next May 3rd and 4th at the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

Paying tribute to the roots, the company will present a classical Russian ballet: Paquita, with music by Minkus and choreography by Petipa. Although over the years, the original two-act play has been lost, Paquita’s wedding with her knight, has become an icon in classical ballet repertoire. Paquita allows the main couple, in this case played by dancers Jun Tanabe and Kaori Fukui, to show their virtuosity. It also has a number of variations and Pas de Trois played by soloists of the company. The costumes were made in the workshops of Mariinsky Theatre (formerly known as the Kirov) of St. Petersburg.

To complement this eclectic program, and as a tribute to Venezuela, the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida will present Fuga con Pajarillo, the orchestral version of Venezuelan composer, Aldemaro Romero’s fugue, choreographed by Vladimir Issaev. In this work the typical steps of Joropo (a folk dance) are recreated in pointe shoes, showing the technicality of the solo dancers. The costumes are a creation by designer Jorge Gallardo who, inspired in bougainvillea flower, dresses the ballerinas, while the soloist wears traditional Venezuelan Liqui-liqui.

The company will also present The Dance of the Hours from the opera La Gioconda, with music by Poncielli and choreographed by Issaev. This piece was recently premiered as part of The Opera Atelier’s Great Moments of Opera. Followed by The Encounter, also choreographed by maestro Issaev with the beautiful Albinoni’s adagio. This choreography danced by Takayuki Asai and Hill Lillian, earned him the award for best choreographer in the festival of Palm Springs, and continues to be a success every time they perform it.

Furthermore, Takayuki Asai and Lillian Hill will dance the classic Coppelia’s Pas de Deux by the composer Delibes and choreographed by Gorsky/Saint – Leon, while Jorge Barani and Meisy García will perform Paris’ Flames, a Pas de Deux with music by Asafiev and choreography by Vainonen. This Pas de Deux is performed only by exceptional dancers in high quality and strict standars international competition. It allows them to show their best technical skills.
