In this five-part program, Artistic Director Kevin Irving juxtaposes all-female and all-male ballets to explore gender stereotypes in dance and even in society, and includes one of Resident Choreographer Nicolo Fonte’s most successful works to bring the two sexes together. We open with what is considered the quintessential female role in all of ballet, that of The Dying Swan, a solo created by Mikhail Fokine for the legendary Anna Pavlova. Inspired by a poem from Tennyson, the four-minute masterpiece epitomizes the ethereal beauty, the delicacy, and the fragility of a romantic-era ballerina.
