Astana Presents MASTERPIECES
Nov 20 @ 7:30 pm

Astana Ballet is one of the top performance theater companies of the Republic of Kazakhstan. For the first time, the theater group will be on the West Coast, featuring a world-class and diverse repertoire, set on a technically riveting stage. The program will include classic and modern dance as well as original compositions by renowned choreographers.

The evening’s performance will feature The Heritage of the Great Steppe, a Kazakh folk dance which is full of expressive music and artistic imagery. Also included will be three neoclassical one-act ballets, which include two pieces by Brazilian choreographer Ricardo Amarante: Love Fear Loss, a ballet set to songs by Edith Piaf that focuses on Piaf’s life story; and A Fuego Lento, a ballet that uses the rhythms of a Samba and Tango to tell a story about the flush of first love. The final one-act, Love’s Lost Idols, is by New York-based choreographer Nicolo Fonte..
