Since its founding some three decades ago, this acclaimed ensemble has been equally popular with dance aficionados, mainstream audiences, and critics alike. This stems from the brilliant choreography of Mark Morris with its riveting artistry, wit, and grace. His work is well known for its musicality, epitomized by performances that always feature live music. "[Mark Morris] finds ways to make bodies sing all the notes, not just the high ones." (The New York Times) This captivating program features Italian Concerto set to Bach’s Italian Concerto in F major and , the D.C. area premiere of A Wooden Tree set to the music and words of Ivor Cutler, poet and songwriter from Scotland. The ensemble also performs Jenn and Spencer set to Henry Cowell’s Suite for Violin and Piano as well as Crosswalk set to the Grand Duo Concertant for clarinet and piano by Carl Maria von Weber.

This renowned company from Moscow brings two of the most romantic classical works to our stage in the grand tradition of Russian ballet. Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare's classic tale of young star-crossed lovers falling victim to family hatred. This tragic love story is illuminated by Petipa's brilliant choreography and Tchaikovsky's majestic score, and complemented by resplendent costumes and stunning sets. Then the dancers perform Chopiniana, which portrays a Romantic dream-world with ballerinas bathed in moonlight dancing around a young poet, and is often described as a "romantic reverie." With enchanting music by Chopin and ethereal choreography by Mikhail Fokine, this beautiful morsel is the pure classical form of ballet from the 19th century.
