Rubies for Valentine’s Day

To celebrate the most romantic holiday, Grand Rapids Ballet Company brings together three compositions bursting with passion, including a U.S. premiere performance from choreographer (and GRB favorite) Mário Radačovský.

  • Rubies: Legendary choreographer George Balanchine premiered Jewels, a three-part abstract ballet, in 1967 with the New York City Ballet. Each act featured performers dressed in the color of a different precious stone. For Rubies, crimson dancers dart across the stage to a jazzy piano capriccio from Stravinsky.
  • The Moor’s Pavane: set to the music of Henry Purcell, José Limón’s acclaimed 20-minute ballet explores the themes of jealousy and death found in Shakespeare’s Othello
  • Bolero: In 2011, Radačovský premiered his Romeo and Juliet with the Grand Rapids Ballet, then returned in 2012 to create Black Swan/White Swan—his own spin on Swan Lake. Now, he adds a touch of elegance to Ravel’s ballet of sensuality and strife.<p>

Grand Rapids Ballet Company

The seeds of the Grand Rapids Ballet Company were planted in 1971, with the founding of the city’s Civic Ballet. 12 years later, another cultural program started up: the Summerfest School of Grand Rapids, an academy for the development of professional dancers. The two eventually merged, and the Grand Rapids Ballet Company was born. Although the Civic Ballet and Summerfest School are now a single entity, the RBC upholds both of their missions, training young performers and putting on classic productions, and contemporary choreographies.<p>
