The Sarasota Ballet's Digital Program 6 features:
George Balanchine's Serenade
An earlier Balanchine creation - in fact, his first ballet choreographed in America, Serenade was initially performed in June of 1934 by students of the School of American Ballet; after several revisions, it would see its official professional premiere with the American Ballet in March of 1935. Blue-costumed dancers, set against a blue background, gracefully interact through four movements of a score composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Sir Kenneth MacMillan's Elite Syncopations
This 1974 production first performed by The Royal Ballet demonstrates MacMillan in his most playful choreographic space; dancers engage one another in a mock "dance concert" set to rollicking ragtime music by Scott Joplin and others. Delightfully gaudy costumes designed by Ian Spurling infuse the ballet with a garish twist of joy, bringing a splash of colorful splendor to this relentlessly fun affair.
