The Deal

Masters of Dance & Music

  • A Shepherd Singing (and I still heard nothing)—World Premiere: As the Princeton University Orchestra plays Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, American Repertory Ballet Resident Choreographer Mary Barton interprets the iconic melodies into a physical symphony on stage.
  • Glazunov Variations: Selections from Alexander Glazunov’s classical ballet Raymonda underscore the technically precise choreography of Kirk Peterson, a former dancer at the American Ballet Theatre.
  • Excerpts from There is a Time: In contrast to the program’s classical pieces, Jose Limón displays the revolutionary stance a modern choreographer can take with a work set to music from Norman Dello Joio.

American Repertory Ballet

“This talented company is a gem in New Jersey," declared Broadway World's Marina Kennedy. It would seem the residents of the Garden State agree—American Repertory Ballet was crowned Favorite Dance Company three separate times by the Jersey Arts People's Choice Awards. Its journey to this distinction began in 1963 when Audrée Estey, the founder of Princeton Ballet School, created Princeton Regional Ballet Company as the professional arm of the institution. By the time its name changed to the current incarnation, the Ballet had already been showcasing an array of both classic and contemporary masterpieces by Alvin Ailey, Twyla Tharp, and Dominique Dumais. It's continued to celebrate the art of the dance and test tippytoes to their limit via original productions, tours to Portugal, and traditions such as its annual staging of Nutcracker, an ARB fixture since 1964.
