A nationally sourced all-star roster of professional singers, Seraphic Fire weaves complex vocals and dynamic performance into a shimmering audio-visual tapestry. Their popular Christmas program features English, Spanish, and American carols, sung with classical poise and seasonally appropriate gusto. Patrons can fill their ears amidst flickering candlelight, and enjoy sweeter sounds than those produced by well-intentioned but atonal door-to-door carolers and traveling reindeer choirs.
In a mixed repertory concert, Boca Ballet Theatre’s troupe of dancers flutters and floats across the stage to the choreography of co-artistic director Dan Guin. "Spring Fever" borrows from both classical and contemporary ballet and elicits awe throughout the 520-seat theater with dazzling jazz flourishes, speedy costume changes, and dancers who solve Rubik's cubes with their feet. Guin’s “Bubblin’ Over” strikes modern chords as dancers twirl and pirouette to music by Grammy Award-winning crooner Michael Bublé, and comedic folly injects new life into Ballet Russes’ classic “Graduation Ball.” The lively production also marks a world premiere of Guin's new original work, “Voyage Classique.”
