An Evening with the Ballets Russes: This Weekend at Zankel
The Dance Department and Orchestra present Les Sylphides, Fawn, and Firebird
This Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 7 at 3 p.m. the Orchestra and Department of Dance will present "An Evening with the Ballets Russes" in the Arthur Zenkel Music Center. The performance will feature three ballets from Sergei Diaghilev's The Ballets Russes, a traveling Russian ballet company. The ballets include Les Sylphides, choreographed by Michael Fokine with music by Frederic Chopin, L'Apres-midi d'un Faune, choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky with music by Debussy, and Firebird, created by Mikhail Fokine with music by Stravinsky.
Skidmore ballet and modern dancers will be performing the program. It is staged by associate professor Denise Warner Limoli and conducted by composer, conductor, and electronic musician Anthony Holland. Limoli designed the production, sets by Garrett Wilson, costumes by Kim Vanyo, and lighting by Shawn Dubois. Lainie Oshlag, '16 is performing in Firebird. For her, the experience is unlike anything she has done before: "Working with a live orchestra is like no other experience I've had. Their energy moves the dancers, making the performance magical."
