The young women and men of the Maryland Youth Ballet celebrate the long history and promising future of their art form in this season’s iteration of the annual spring concert. The event immediately grabs hold of the audience with a captivating rendition of the classic “Kingdom of the Shades,” one of the most revered excerpts from Petipa’s La Bayadere. Clad in ghostly white tutus, the ensemble slowly descends a ramp as if visiting from heaven, performing precise arabesques every three steps. This archetypical example of abstract ballet is both serene and unsettling, and visualizes the opium dream of a warrior whose true love has just succumbed to a senseless death. Maryland Youth Ballet continues the themes of abstract bodily expression and spellbinding grace through its performance of Empyrean Skies, a recently premiered contemporary work by staff member Christopher Doyle. Finally, Coronation of the Dragonfly Queen ends the performance on a more playful note as the dancers play insects twirling away from a giant rampaging flip-flop.
