International Ballet Classique presents its Spring Festival at Neumann University on Saturday, March 22, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door.
The Festival will open with one of Marius Petipa’s most famous works, the Statanella Pas de Deux, from The Carnival in Venice. It is the story of a young man who is mesmerized and enchanted by his beautiful partner who is an enticing spirit in disguise.
The program continues with Les Apparitions, a new ballet created by Malcolm Burn, a past winner of the Ivan Soloman Award for Best Male Dancer and current Artistic Associate and Ballet Master of the Richmond Ballet. Accompanied by music from Frederic Chopin, Burn’s work is inspired by the beautiful Les Slyphides created by revolutionary ballet master, Michel Fokine.
Also performed will be The Wedding Scene (Act III) from the comic ballet, Coppelia, originally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon to the music of Léo Delibes. The scene is a combination of character dance, strong classical ballet with intricate solos and finalized with dance depicting the wedding of characters Franz and Swanhilda.
The International Ballet Classique is a non-profit corporation and the first and only professional ballet company in Delaware County, serving the Delaware Valley and surrounding areas.
General admission is $20. Seniors and students with ID is $16. Purchase tickets online at www.academyballetru.com/ or call 484-444-2389.
