Choreography by George Balanchine
Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
World Premiere by Tom Mattingly
Pianist: Dr. Douglas-Jayd Burn
Allegro Brillante by George Balanchine is a light and effervescent sixteen minutes full of sparkling swiftness and precise execution. A quick burst of classical ballet, this celebrated work captivates audiences from start to finish.
Former Richmond Ballet dancer Tom Mattingly returns to Richmond to create his second world premiere on the company, a stunning visual display inspired by Virginia’s natural beauty. Piano sonatas by current German composer Goetz Oestlind serve as the musical backdrop for this contemporary take on classical themes.
