I would like to invite you to celebrate BTM’s 35th and my 10th Anniversary Season, 2012-2013. We are setting out to tantalize you with the most whimsically powerful, diverse, season to date.
For those of you who love to mix fantasy with innovation, there is the world premiere of The Dancing Princesses, (based on the Grimm’s tale), in which I am creating an amazing new world of magic where the princesses will discover that the power of dance combined with love is the only force strong enough to overthrow the treacherous Goblin Queen and defeat her evil spell.
For the traditionalist in you, there is BTM’s ever popular rendition of the Christmas classic complete with Sugar Plum Parties followed by ballet’s great comedy, Coppelia—a whimsical, mysterious story based both in reality and fantasy.
Celebrate BTM’s dual anniversaries with our Director’s Choice in celebration of American culture, choreographers and composers. The program features the energetic, passionate work, American Songs, based on traditional folk, ballad and patriotic American songs in honor of Maryland’s War of 1812 Bicentennial. Get in the flow with ABT’s iconic choreographer Antony Tudor’s Continuo, set to Pachelbel’s music. I have always found Tudor’s work to be profound, spiritual and transformative--worth introducing to a new audience. He, along with Balanchine, will remain amongst the heroes of Twentieth Century American Dance. Rounding out this program will be works choreographed to music created by local American composers of national renown.
And if you missed our acclaimed premiere of Aladdin last season, you can catch it again at the Bowie Center for the Performing Arts for a discounted price with your purchase of our season subscription.
Fantasy, innovation, tradition, whimsy, mystery, energy, passion and transformation—subscription renewal today ensures that you will have the best seats in the theater for these tantalizing excursions through dance.
