Brandywine Ballet Presents – Carmina Burana
October 26, 2019 - October 27, 2019
Our fall program will feature three dynamic and different works by Resident Choreographer, Nancy Page. Ms. Page’s powerful adaptation of Carmina Buranais set to composer, Carl Orff’s, masterpiece of the same name about life, fortune and fate. This epic score is brought to life by the dancers as the wheel of fortune turns from joy to bitterness to hope and to grief. Brandywine Ballet is thrilled to present a second work of Ms. Page’s this October, titled Never Ending Road. This work is set to the strikingly beautiful music of Canadian born, Celtic Singer/Songwriter, Loreena McKennitt. The lead couple moves through a series of honeyed duets throughout the work and ends with a heartfelt pas de deux. Finally, we will present an excerpt from Ms. Page’s Colour Brillanté. A powerhouse of large ensemble work, Romanesque sets, and vivid attire, Colour Brillantéis a celebration of the many changing colors of fall. The fall series will also showcase a repertoire piece choreographed by Tim Early that will be performed by the Brandywine Contemporary dancers. Fall performances will be held October 26 & 27, 2019.
