New Chamber Ballet's 2011/12 season continues with a program of four ballets with live music:
The world premiere of The Letter by Miro Magloire: a fast-paced 'upstairs-downstairs' scene to music by Joseph Haydn;
Magloire's Emilia, a "dark love triangle set to Karlheinz Stockhausen's Klavierstück VII and VIII,...expressionistic... seething with strangled and rigid forms." (Claudia LaRocco, The New York Times)
Leise, Leise, a Chekhovian family portrait to music by Luciano Berio;
Love Song Solos, set to German art songs arranged for two maracas, "wonderful little sketches, lush and evocative." (Marina Harss, The Faster Times)
Performers include Sarah Atkins, Elizabeth Brown, Holly Curran, and Katie Gibson. The music will be played live by Melody Fader (piano).
"It's heartening to see work so focused on the meeting of dance and music." -Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
