NBT’s mid-winter program features two engaging ballets plus a World Premiere. Nicolo Fonte’s Bolero, set to the iconic score from Ravel, is filled with pulsating movement and scintillating emotion. Entangled in the hypnotic rhythm of the music, dancers are swept up in a journey toward not just human interaction, but true connection. George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments, while rooted in classical ballet, is a manifestation of modern movement exploding on stage in a vibrant study of the human psyche. Rounding out the performance is an original work by dancer and choreographer Krista Baker. In addition to her seasoned performance career with NBT, she has established an exciting choreographic repertoire, successfully producing over 10 original works for both A Choreographers’ Showcase and The Studio Series – earning her praise for her fresh, dynamic vocabulary and brilliant ensemble work.
Prior to all performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet, with special guests, multi-media presentations and more. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain.
