Brandywine Ballet is proud to announce its fall production Colour Brillanté. Performances will be held October 21st – 23rd, 2016 and tickets are available online at www.brandywineballet.org or by calling the box office at 610-696-2711.
The Company is excited to present two dynamic and different works by Resident Choreographer, Nancy Page. With its impressive cast size, Colour Brillanté is an opportunity to see Brandywine Ballet principal dancers in breathtaking solos and pas de deux. Previous performances of Colour Brillanté have exhibited the seemingly effortless ability of Brandywine Ballet to uplift and inspire long after the curtain closes. There will be new choreographic additions to the work this season that you do not want to miss! The powerful music of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak is featured in Colour Brillanté, and the dancers’ will meet this powerful music with technicality and artistry. Welcome fall with a shower of colors!
Brandywine Ballet is also thrilled to present a second work of Ms. Page’s this October, titled Never Ending Road. This work is set to the strikingly beautiful music of Canadian born, Celtic Singer/Songwriter Loreena McKennitt. The lead couple moves through a series of honeyed duets throughout the work, ending with a heartfelt pas de deux. The corps de ballet supports them all, also utilizing these different dynamics of movement. Come experience the music personified through the contemporary ballet choreography and expressed through the hearts of the dancers in Never Ending Road.
Following the final performance of Colour Brillanté, Brandywine Ballet will be hosting a Meet and Greet with the dancers. This event will be held at Spence 312 at 312 S. High Street in West Chester, PA from 4:30-7PM on October 23rd, 2016, and tickets are $35 per person.
