Symphonie Fantastique: Un Bal with Bach’s A Musical Offering
A trio of works, including two world premieres, fill the Carolina Ballet’s latest program of dance. The first world premiere, set to the second movement of Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, takes a graceful look at the power (and danger) of the imagination. Un Bal (A Ball) follows a young artist enraptured by a beautiful girl, but there’s one major difficulty: she’s made up, his own vision of the ideal woman.
The second world premiere was created by choreographer Zalman Raffael, although its content is being kept secret, much like the basilisk that lives beneath the stage. Lastly, Artistic Director Robert Weiss showcases A Dancerly Response, which is a dancerly response to Bach’s A Musical Offering.
Carolina Ballet has continuously awed audience members with classic pieces such as Carmen, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake. Artistic director Robert Weiss helms the graceful outfit, often staging his own choreography. Symposium was particularly memorable for its use of “Serenade” by Leonard Bernstein and its finale.
