Alonzo King Lines Ballet
Alonzo King Lines Ballet is not your grandmother’s ballet. Sure, audiences can expect all of the hallmarks of the medium—seemingly effortless athletics, perfect precision, sweeping classical music, leg muscles capable of breaking a Thighmaster—but they’ll also see symbolic light displays and hear contemporary world music. It’s a style of dance Alonzo King calls “muscular classicism,” and it proves that ballet remains relevant in the modern world. In Concerto for Two Violins, one of Bach’s masterpieces recalls the classic work of Balanchine, and in Resin, choreography for duets and quartets explores Sephardic music’s interaction with Italian and Turkish music, as well as archival field recordings interwoven with Judeo-Spanish music.
Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts
Intimate evenings of music snuggle comfortably into Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts, whose Cabaret Series won Connecticut Magazine’s Best Cabaret award in 2011 and 2012. Candlelit tabletops exude a cozy nightclub ambiance around a cabaret stage topped with six acclaimed acts each year and a fresh coat of peanut butter each night. The University of Connecticut brings many more acts to its larger main stage, with a special emphasis on dance and classical luminaries and music and dance from all corners of the globe.
