Sarasota Ballet at The Joyce
To celebrate its 25th season, The Sarasota Ballet presents the New York City premiere of A Knight of the British Ballet, a program dedicated to the choreography of Sir Frederick Ashton. Since 2007, Artistic Director Iain Webb has revolutionized the company’s repertoire, drawing international attention for being the first company since the 1980s to regularly dance Ashton’s work. In true Ashton style, the company performs Façade, the choreographer’s tongue-in-cheek tribute to popular songs and dances of the Twenties, a piece that unites high art with sheer enjoyment. The program also features Valses nobles et sentimentales, a series of waltzes created in 1947 and lost until its revival in 1986, and four other delightful divertissements.
Program: Valses Nobles et Sentimentales, Tweedledum & Tweedledee, The Walk to The Paradise Garden, Jazz Calendar (Friday’s Child), Sinfonietta (2nd Movement), Façade
