Souvenir:

a new ballet with works from the past and present to music from the American songbook and beyond.

October 26-28, 2018 Tony Williams’ new venture, City Ballet of Boston launches their inaugural season at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA with a new show entitled: Souvenir.  This presents a selection of songs from the American songbook (and beyond).  Music by deBussy, Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Verdi, Chopin, Strauss, Schubert and Brahms accompany dances from the past and present.

City Ballet of Boston will present Birthday Variations from the Gerald Arpino Foundation (set by Nicole Duffy Robertson); Cuban Overture, choreographed by Gianni di Marco; selections from Isadora Duncan set by Ellen O’Reily-Jonas; and two works by Tony Williams.  Mr. Williams will present his full ballet, Ephemera, as a whole for the first time, in addition to a new work “Autumn Leaves.”

Life: In Color

A 360-degree dance extravaganza featuring jazz and rock-n-roll music from the 1960s to today told through a plethora of dance styles. A touching human story surfaces as emotion is explored through color–literal and metaphorical– while your senses are stimulated throughout the nightclub-esque venue.  The sounds of former eras bring us into our current political and social climate, confronting us with reflections of the past through choreography of today.  A thought-provoking immersive-dance experience for all ages is compunded with a message of hope and determination for tomorrow’s Life: In Color.
