The Toledo Ballet Presents: “From Heart to Quill”
Great dancers can bring a piece of music to life, but the performers of “From Heart to Quill” take it a step further: they become the actual notes. Personifying the quarters, eighths, and sixteenths of everyone from Beethoven to Bernstein, the dancers in Michael Lang’s production use their bodies to demonstrate the composer’s music, performed by the Toledo Symphony. “From Heart to Quill” showcases Lang’s signature style of bold, contemporary choreography.
Older than the Toledo Symphony Orchestra, older than the Toledo Opera, and older even than the expression "As old as the Toledo Ballet," the Toledo Ballet has been a landmark on the city's cultural landscape since 1939. For over 75 years, they have been presenting dance performances and training the next generation of classical and contemporary dancers at their on-site school. They'll gladly put on contemporary works such as 2008's Outside the Lines, but they also stick to tradition—in fact, their annual production of The Nutcracker, accompanied by the Toledo Symphony, is the oldest continuously running production of The Nutcracker in the country.
