Immerse yourself in the captivating awe of three powerful ballets that only Festival Ballet could bring to the stage. From Viktor Plotnikov’s gripping dance-drama “Coma” to George Balanchine’s sumptuous “Serenade,” and Yury Yanowsky’s apocalyptic “Smoke & Mirrors,” this impressive program reflects something for everyone.

MIXED PROGRAM

Coma
Music: Arvo Pärt
Choreography: Viktor Plotnikov

Viktor Plotnikov’s “Coma” is a dance-drama like no other. Inspired by Michael Chrichton’s 1978 film of the same name, the work is at turns tender and gripping, with the unique shapes, angles, and perspectives audiences have come to expect from this truly contemporary choreographer.

Serenade**
Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography: George Balanchine

George Balanchine's "Serenade" is considered one of the all time masterpieces of 20th century choreography. The ballet that launched the iconic choreographer's extraordinary American career, is a visual treat, drenchec in moonlight and bursting with energy. The New Yorker magazine says "the piece is beautiful—stirring, sweeping."

Smoke and Mirrors**
Music: Lucas Vidal
Choreography: Yury Yanowsky

Former Boston Ballet principal dancer Yury Yanowsky created his first major work for that company in 2016, which WBUR calls, “innovative and inspired, breaking the boundaries of possibilities in ballet.” The smoky, apocalyptic work is a reflection of today’s society and its codependent relationship with social media.
