Masterpiece in Motion features SDT's premiere of Serenade by George Balanchine, and a new work, Oneiros, by Australian choreographer, Adrian Burnett as well as A Million Kisses to my Skin by David Dawson.
Serenade was the first ballet that Balanchine choreographed when he arrived in the United States. Premiered by the School of American Ballet in June 1934, Serenade, set to music by Tchaikovsky, is now a staple within the repertoire of many companies around the world such as San Francisco Ballet, The Royal Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet etc.
Created by David Dawson for Het Nationale Ballet (Dutch National Ballet), A Million Kisses to my Skin is a post-classical dance work that visualizes the baroque style patterns of Bach's Piano Concerto No 1. Extravagant and free-flowing movements constantly emerge and dissolve across the stage, displaying a virtuosic vocabulary that is elegant and refined.
Stating his inspiration for the new piece, Burnett says, "This work is the gathering of several impulses inspired by Osvaldo Golijov's exhilarating music and the inner voices that inspire his musical thoughts. I wanted to choreograph a work that translated these abstract musical ideas into visual imagery."
It is an evening of masterpieces by these great choreographers in motion that is not to be missed!
