BRANDYWINE BALLET COMPANY
FALL PERFORMANCE SERIES
TWO PREMIERES, TWO DYNAMIC CHOREOGRAPHERS!
West Chester, PA – Brandywine Ballet, Chester County’s premier ballet company is proud to announce its 2015 performances of Carmina Burana October 23-25, 2015 (specific performance dates and times listed below), as well as the Carmina Burana Meet and Greet October 25, 2015. Brandywine Ballet continues its residency this season at Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall, 700 S. High Street, West Chester, PA. Individual tickets range $25-$40. Tickets and a complete schedule are available by telephone at (610) 696-2711 and on-line at www.brandywineballet.org.
A unique artistic experience for the Chester County region will be coming in October 2015. Brandywine Ballet will premiere two new choreographic works of divergent character, beauty, and intensity within one program. Carmina Burana will surely prove to be an extraordinary collaboration. Resident Choreographer, Nancy Page, has set her ballet to the inspirational music of Carl Orff, portraying the medieval collection of poems and texts about life, fortune and fate. The Brandywine Singers and their percussion orchestra, under the direction of Jonathan Kreamer, will bring Carmina Burana’s epic score to life. The other side of the program will feature Philadelphia-based choreographer, Meredith Rainey’s Swan Lake Act II, a distinguished act from a timeless ballet. Tchaikovsky’s score is full of melancholy and longing; two aspects that will be present in the dancing of Odette, a young maiden cursed by the evil spell of von Rothbart to be a swan by day and maiden by night, and of Prince Siegfried, who falls in love with her and hopes to break the spell that has been cast upon her.
