Matthew Westerby Company Presents "A Swan Lake Fantasy" & Other Works
The 2014 season of the Matthew Westerby Company will take place at the Hudson Guild Theatre, March 2830, 2014.

Featuring three world premieres, the season highlights A Swan Lake Fantasy, created by collaborators Matthew Westerby (choreography), Matt Van Brink (composer/arranger), and Matei Varga (pianist). A 25-minute arrangement of Tchaikovsky's famous score, "A Swan Lake Fantasy" is a contemporary re-imagining of the classic, reflecting on the notions within the original work of beauty, betrayal and sacrifice, leading to ultimate tragedy. The work encapsulates the harmony and conflict present in the original narrative, and abstractly re-invents a timeless classic.  

Varga, a renowned pianist, will perform live onstage alongside the eight dancers of Matthew Westerby Company. Lighting design is by Mike Riggs.

"Making an arrangement of a great piece of music means breaking it apart, inspecting the pieces, and from them, creating something new againby presenting the themes and dances in a new, perhaps surprising order, an entirely new story emerges out of the old one."   - Matt Van Brink

"SwanLake"is my favorite piece of music in the entire literature This may sound like a counterintuitive statement coming from a pianist, but I've always been fascinated with Tchaikovsky's unparalleled ability to tell a story and paint a scene, as well as his endless melodic inventiveness."    - Matei Varga

The 2014 season also features two other world premieres. The Matthew Westerby Company dancers include Dylan Baker, Dina Christophe, Kayla Farrish, Gierre Godley, Nicole Kadar, Alessandra Larson, Kristin Licata, and Matthew Westerby.
