With eyes like black pits beneath his pharaonic crown, the graven image of Seti I looms above the stage as masses of slaves move beneath. Their work is not anguished toil, however—it's ballet, with choreography that conveys everything from labor, to hope, to the parting of the sea. Set to Hans Zimmer's score from Dreamworks' The Prince of Egypt, Ballet Magnificat!—which bills itself as America's premier Christian ballet company—animates the drama and pathos of the Book of Exodus beneath the stage lights. From his youth as the adopted son of the Egyptian royal family to his destiny as the leader of the Tribes of Israel, Moses's life comes to vivid life through striking melodies and powerful dance pieces.
Olmsted Performing Arts Center
When a performance studio stages The Sound of Music as its first production only months after opening, you know it means business. For the staff of Olmsted Performing Arts, their dedication to developing students' acting skills and hunger for creative expression continues to generate inspiring performances. These range from classic Rodgers and Hammerstein showtunes to song-and-dance numbers from Footloose, a rousing tale about the adventures of a barefoot podiatrist.
