The Romance Series, at Victoria Theatre from February 9 – 12, 2012, will feature three ballets in one amazing night. Red Roses, Between Heaven and Earth and The Butterfly Suite.
The first ballet on the evening’s program is the revival of Ballet Austin Artistic Director, Stephen Mills’ Red Roses; a neo-classical ballet, which explores the ecstasy and anger of love through the melodic songs of Edith Piaf.
The second piece is choreographed by Dayton native, Gina Gardner-Walther. Gina makes her Dayton Ballet debut with the world premiere, Between Heaven and Earth. This contemporary ballet explores the feelings of romance that go beyond attraction.
Dayton Ballet’s Artistic Director, Karen Russo Burke, completes the evening with a new world premiere, The Butterfly Suite. This one-act story ballet is loosely based on Puccini’s famous opera, Madame Butterfly. This beautifully choreographed ballet tells a heart wrenching story about clashing cultures, naivety, love, lust and sorrow.
