The Newport Music Festival returns to the stunning Casino Theater with a stage extravaganza to close the fifty-first season. Festival soloists and ensembles share the stage with the Jon Lehrer Dance Company.
As reviewed by Dance Magazine, “The company took the house not so much by storm as by quantum physics. Jon Lehrer's strikingly original choreography transformed the stage into an energy field of super-charged particles.”
Imagine a dark stage … A dancer gracefully places a chair on stage and a spotlight illuminates a cellist as she crosses the stage, sits, and begins to play.
Later, the cellist is joined by a violinist who is upstage also bathed in a pool of light. The two begin a beautiful duet across the space from another, when suddenly the stage becomes bright and filled with dancers gliding, floating, and filling the room with energy.
Be prepared for an evening full of gorgeous live music, elegant and explosive movement, and surprises galore! You may even experience a performer or two right in the audience right near you. Not to be missed!
