Anchorage Ballet: “Triple Bill
The dancers of the Anchorage Ballet treat audiences to three ballets in one evening:
- Chopiniana: Virtuoso choreographer Mikhail Fokine was inspired by Isadora Duncan’s trip to Russia in 1905 and the dancing of Anna Pavlova, for whom he rewrote the entire piece. It’s set to several of Chopin’s waltzes and other short pieces inflected by the folk dances of Poland.
- “Les Chat”: An excerpt from the “Jellicle Ball”, this playful piece, staged by Broadway vet General McArthur Hambrick, transforms the ballet’s dancers into anxious felines who gather together for a yearly celebration of life and virtuosic yowling.
- “Coffee Tonight”: The Anchorage Ballet shows off its funny and sexy sides in this comedic tango number, which gives audiences a peek into a Prohibition-era New York nightclub.<p>
Since its founding in 1997, the Anchorage Ballet has attracted a lot of attention in the arts community—and not just with all the head-turning pirouettes. The company gives young dancers a chance to perfect their technique, perform alongside professional dancers, and bring their talents to the largely unmapped wilds of Canada. In Anchorage, the company performs seven or more ballets a year at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts.
