Island Moving Company

Island Moving Company, Newport’s contemporary ballet company announces the return of Second Star to the Right: A Tale of Hook and Pan. The site-specific ballet is in the tradition of Island Moving Company’s renowned Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff and legendary Dracula at Belcourt Castle.  In partnership with Rhode Island’s official flagship and Tall Ship ambassador, the Oliver Hazard Perry, and historic Fort Adams, Second Star to the Right: A Tale of Hook and Pan, is a full length story ballet in two acts on the docks of the fort, and on the decks and rigging of the Oliver Hazard Perry.

         The ballet was premiered in 2016 with support by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  The debut run featured four performances that quickly sold out, and a fifth show was added. Coast Guard regulations limit occupancy on the ship which restricts the number of tickets available to 80 for each performance. The 2018 production will feature 7 performances September 6-9, 2018, and the original score performed live under the direction of composer Tobias Andrews. Sponsorships of Second Star to the Rightare available, and tickets can be purchased online at www.IslandMovingCo.org or over the phone at (401)847-4470.
