A mixed-repertory program featuring Fancy Free, Apollo and Falling. Fancy Free (1944) is set in New York City on a hot summer night and portrays three sailors on shore leave in the 1940's. The audience will be sure to get a kick out of the performance, and have a gas of a time.
Apollo (1928) traces the birth of the god of music, poetry, and prophecy and his education by three muses- Calliope, who personifies poetry, Polyhymnia, who represents mime, and Terpsichore, who combines poetry and gestures in dance.
Falling (2005) is a classical, playful piece for five couples set to the music of Mozart's Salzburg Symphonies. Featuring music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and choreography by Stanton Welch, the audience will dance in their seats for this delightful ballet.
Pre-concert activities in the North Plaza sponsored by Fidelity Investments at 7 p.m.
