Without ballet shoes, ballerinas wouldn't be able to gracefully pirouette, elegantly plié, or receive service at most fast-food restaurants. Observe poise on stage and in public with today's Groupon for a ticket to the Montgomery Ballet's An Evening of Premieres at the Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts at Troy University. Choose between two options:
- For $12, you get a right- or left-side orchestra seat ($25 value) on Friday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. or Saturday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m.
- For $17, you get a center orchestra seat ($35 value) on Friday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. or Saturday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Helmed by artistic director and renowned dance veteran Elie Lazar, Montgomery Ballet—one of only two professional ballet companies in Alabama—loosens audiences' jaws with the sheer elegance of human movement. This year, An Evening of Premieres showcases a new modern work choreographed by seasoned swaying savant Adria Ferrali, artistic director of the Italian company New Dance Drama and former dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company. Set to the iconic sounds of Stravinsky, the avant-garde work—designed for and executed by Montgomery Ballet’s well-trained whirlers—welcomes free interpretation, artistic exploration, and post-show Gatorade dousing.
- the Montgomery Ballet seems to be thriving instead of having to close the curtain, receiving statewide and international attention in the last few years. – Teri Greene, Montgomery Advertiser
