Tahoe Youth Ballet-Spring Season
Tahoe Youth Ballet presents its second performance featuring local and guest artists in its Spring Season at the North Tahoe High School Theater. The program will feature guest artist Stephen Straub of Suzanne Farrell Ballet and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet alongside six of Tahoe's finest young dancers. The program in March will feature four ballets. Straub and the entire company of dancers will open the program in Deborah Wingert's La Derniere Valse, a world premiere to the romantic music of Maurice Ravel. Peff Modelski's Celebration Tarantella is a lively dance for three ladies to an excerpt from Ottorino Respighi's La Boutique Fantasque. In the evening's second world premiere, Artistic Director Christin Hanna has choreographed Maturescence, inspired by the lives of her young dancers, to the music of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang. Another highlight of the program is guest choreographer Constantine Baecher's ballet Viduity, set to music by Leos Janacek. Hanna has staged this work for TYB as she appeared in the original cast when the ballet was created. The New York Times wrote, "... the work for four women used an enigmatic language of gesture and authoritative spatial arrangements to create a sophisticated, moving meditation on grief" when the work premiered in 2007.
