    APRIL 15-23, 2016

    Three unique contemporary works based on the original groundbreaking, shocking, and revolutionary ballets by the world’s first superstar male dancer/choreographer – Vaslav Nijinsky. Ballet West Revival-Afternoon of Faune. Choreography Jerome Robbins. Games-Helen Pickett (Choreography) brilliantly re-envisioned the ballet in a modern day office with all the sumptuous beauty of the original score and the claustrophobic, voyeuristic and scandalous qualities that the libretto hints. Rite of Spring returns, with a cast of 24. The 100th anniversary of the work’s creation. Nicolo Fonte (Choreography) create a new version of this powerful and sensual ballet.
