A pair of powerful works casts light into darkness. From Jose Limon’s The Moor’s Pavane, exploring the central drama of Shakespeare’s Othello, to a world premiere set to Schubert’s Death and the Maiden played live by Aurea Ensemble, this double feature offers a dive into darkness.
The Moor’s Pavane
Chor: Jose Limón
“A totally engrossing work and likely to remain among Mr. Limón's most enduring ballets” -The New York Times
Jose Limón’s iconic Moor’s Pavane conveys the jealousy, rage and relationships of the characters at the heart of Shakespeare’s Othello, within the setting of a stately court dance among them.
Death and the Maiden
WORLD PREMIERE | LIVE MUSIC
Chor: Yury Yanowsky & Ken Ossola
A bold new work Death and the Maiden—set to one of Franz Schubert’s final compositions, now celebrating its bicentennial—explores darkness and humanity through music and movement. With powerful live music performed live by Aurea Ensemble, this new piece will be choreographed by Yury Yanowsky and Ken Ossola, with each choreographer taking on alternating movements of the composition, hailed as “a pillar of chamber music.”
