Performance Dates and Times
Friday, 4/25 8:00 p.m.
Two Company Premieres and one World Premiere triple the excitement when New Directions New Works takes the stage at The Capitol Theatre. This dynamic mixed repertory program presents Christopher Wheeldon’s Carousel (A Dance), an impressionistic interpretation of the 1945 Rogers and Hammerstein Broadway musical that infuses a fresh, contemporary twist into this timeless classic. The second company premiere, 18 + 1, a quirky, fun piece choreographed by Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, moves to a Latin beat—sassy with a subtle touch of dark edginess. Then the much-anticipated *World Premiere* by BalletMet Artistic Director Edwaard Liang, explores mythological themes with two pianists on stage playing Rachmaninoff’s compositions. Inspired by the music, BalletMet dancers journey into the underworld with Orpheus and Eurydice as they showcase Liang’s masterpiece work.
