A Collection of Works Presented by the Richmond Ballet
April 24, 2022 — 4:30 p.m.
Richmond Ballet, The State Ballet of Virginia, presents four diverse works which highlight the versatility, dynamic energy, and intense emotion for which the company is known. A quick burst of classical ballet, George Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante captivates audiences from start to finish with its sparkling swiftness and precise execution. Ben Stevenson’s Three Preludes explores the evolution of a couple’s love in an intimate ballet setting. In an excerpt from Colin Connor’s Vestiges, two dancers display their undeniable connection, reminiscent of a moth to a flame. Rounding out the program is Richmond Ballet Associate Artistic Director Ma Cong’s Glare; Cong’s undeniably emotive signature movement, along with an extraordinary score by David McAlmont and Michael Nyman, are the base for this powerful work that reflects the human experience.
