Enjoy five wonderful works in one passion-filled performance including Allegro Brillante by the father of American ballet, George Balanchine, and music by Tchaikovsky; Trey McIntyre’s epic musing on romantic rituals, Wild Sweet Love, featuring an eclectic mix of toe-tapping popular music from Queen, The Partridge Family, Roberta Flack, and more; the hauntingly alluring Ghost Light by our choreographer-in-residence, Penny Saunders; and the moving pas de deux from Le Corsaire which is among classical ballet’s most famous and performed excerpts. The evening will also include a world premiere work created specifically for Grand Rapids Ballet by new Artistic Director James Sofranko. Don’t miss it!
