ARTS BALLET THEATRE OF FLORIDA PRESENTS
FIREBIRD PENTIMENTO & SPECTRE DE LA ROSE
AT BROWARD CENTER
Arts Ballet of Florida opens the season with a renewed production of Igor Stravinsky’s brilliant score of Firebird, choreographed by Vladimir Issaev. The ballet tells the tale of a magical firebird that helps a heroic prince rescue a beautiful princess from evil, and is based on a Russian fairy tale. The Firebird was first performed by the Ballets Russes in Paris in 1910.
Spectre de la Rose is about a young woman who dreams of dancing with the spirit of a souvenir rose from her first ball, based on a poem by Theophile Gauzier. Firebird Pentimento, choreographed by Vincente Nebrada to excerpts of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Four Suites for Orchestra, is a bold, and abstract work that has the look of a vibrant oil painting. The piece develops through layers of movement, color, light and costuming.
The premiere production opens Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Amaturo Theatre at the Broward Center, located at 201 S.W. 5th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $31 to $35, at Ticketmaster or the Center’s box office. Call 954-462-0222 for more information. Group sales call 954-660-6307.
PLAYWRIGHT MICHAEL McKEEVER’S VERSION OF PLAY
"DRACULA” TO BE PREMIERED AT ARSHT CENTER
Early this summer, McKeever began writing his version of “Dracula,” which will present a world premiere on October 11-28, 2018 by Miami Theatre Company Zoetic Stage in the Carnival Studio at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. What he came up with is a feminist take on the 1897 novel, one in which the women are awakened. He thought, “What if we made them real, contemporary, strong, able to stand up for themselves?” McKeever says, looking at the story through that prism, it made it much more interesting. For example, the vampire hunter Professor Van Helsing, instead of being an old white man, is instead, a strong black woman. It gave me a definite point of view in addressing the material.
It’s 1897, Jonathan Harker and his fiancée, Mina Murray, are welcoming Count Dracula from Transylvania. From that point, nothing is what you’d expect it to be. Using Bram Stoker’s novel as a starting point, McKeever has reinvented the gothic horror tale with a feminist point of view and created female characters that not only stand up to the title character, but eventually overcome him.
Breaking the mold of what a Victorian “lady” should be, the women in this DRACULA are strong, determined and unwilling to play victim to any predator. A very modern take on a classic story.
General Admission tickets are $55 and going fast. Purchase at the box office located at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. For more information call 305-949-6722. Visit online at www.arshtcenter.org
