Ballet for Los Angeles

Posted on May 22, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

If you are one of the many people who have long wished that Los Angeles had a good resident ballet company, I would urge you to support the new Los Angeles Ballet. They were formed in 2007 and are a very strong young company. Jack and I attended all of their first season performances and their Director’s Choice program this season.

The corps de ballet is quite remarkable for a second season company, better than the last local ballet company, whose name I forget. One of the artistic directors, Colleen Neary, studied with Balanchine and is authorized to do Balanchine choreography, which is represented in each year’s repertory. The company also has done some excellent original work, including new works in previous programs.

They are performing August Bournonville’s romantic 1836 ballet La Sylphide this Saturday and Sunday (May 23 and 24) at the Freud Playhouse, UCLA and the following Saturday, May 30th, at the Alex in Glendale. The principal roles are danced by Eddie Tovar and Corina Gill, who are extremely accomplished dancers. Tickets start at $24.

Here is a chance to encourage a very strong young company and help assure Los Angeles of truly excellent ballet for years to come.
