What: Ballet Performance
When: March 28-March 31, 2013 (for specific showtimes, visit the event page)
Where: Orpheum Theatre: 203 W Adams Street Phoenix, AZ 85003
Why: Director's Choice takes the stage with an innovative collection of three different works. Diversions, a sophisticated and stylish ballet by Ib Andersen, contrasts the Arizona premiere of Alexei Ratmansky's Carnival of the Animals which brings whimsical menagerie of animals to life. Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo, acclaimed choreographer from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, presents Off Screen, with dance inspired by film scores--it's slinky and modern, with sexy steps and eccentric moves.
"In terms of patterns, arresting images, varied use of stage space, constant changes of tone and musical attentiveness, this [Diversions] - using 20 dancers - is remarkably skilled dance-making." - Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
