Celebrate summer this year with Ballet Theatre Afrikan’s sizzling new production of “Hooked on Classics”, a colourful brew of enduring classics from the enchanting world of Classical Ballet. With music to soothe the soul and graceful dance to revitalize the eyes, this is a production that spoils for choice.
Classical divertissements include pas de deux from legendary ballets such as Le Corsaire (The Pirate) and the thrilling Grand Pas Classique by Gsovsky, which as its name suggests, is danced in the grand traditional method and celebrates everything classical. The charming Lilac Fairy solo from Sleeping Beauty is always a highlight for ballet lovers, but adding to the delightful mix is the wedding pas de six from Markitenka, originally a one-act ballet set in a village in Hungary, with Choreography by Arthur Saint-Leon and music by Cesare Pugni.
