The Scottish Ballet arrives for its Music Center debut October 14 – 16, 2011 with a repertoire that includes classical technique and contemporary choreography. On the program are Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Song of the Earth and Jorma Elo’s Kings 2 Ends.
Poetic, distinguished and altogether brilliant, Scottish Ballet will astound audiences in their first U.S. performance in 25 years. This Music Center debut will feature an exhilarating double bill starting with Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s masterwork Song of the Earth, a powerful and bitter-sweet celebration of the cycles of life. In contrast, the North American premiere of Kings 2 Ends-a new work by the fiercely contemporary choreographer Jorma Elo-invites audiences to immerse themselves in its lyrical and vibrant choreography.
Revel in the beauty with an evening of dance that will tantalize your contemporary and classical taste buds.
