NJBALLET New Jersey's Favorite Dance Company
UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

Gems of the Ballet

Centenary College Sitnik Theatre

Saturday, November 4 at 8pm

Featuring Designs with Strings,, Facets, Marietta's Song & Saturday Night

Designs with Strings, a one-act ballet, set to Tchaikovsky’s haunting Trio in A Minor, shows the strong neoclassical influence of Taras’ master, George Balanchine.

Facets, is set to the third movement of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony. The ballet is a lyrical piece for three couples, which explores deep emotions and interactions between people.

Marietta's Song, choreographed by George Tomal has created a romantic pas de deux using music from a rarely produced German opera, Die Tote Stadt [The Dead City], composed in 1920 by Erich Wolfgang Korngold.  The opera tells the story of Paul a young widower obsessed with death, and Marietta, a cold-hearted temptress who tries to lure him back to the world of the living.

Saturday Night is set to a series of smoky songs by blues singers Etta James and Kev’ Mo’ (Kevin Moore).  Ms. Thatcher hears unexpected themes and nuances in these songs and reveals them in a smooth incorporation of ballet and jazz dancing.
