Program 1 - Pentimento and Firebird

Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, leaps into its 16th Season starting October 12th, 2013 with Pentimento, and Firebird.

Pentimento, created by choreographer Vicente Nebrada (wikipedia), includes excerpts from Johann Sebastian Bach's Four Suites for Orchestra. The ballet is a bold, abstract work that is based on the art form of painting called pentimento. The artist changes his or her mind about the composition of his painting during the process of painting, and then changes it. This ballet applies the same approach to dance: the concept for the dances and costumes change throughout the performance. Using masks, flowing fabric and creative lighting to create a mystical effect, the piece develops through layers of movement, color and light. Adding to mystical effects is original costuming by Cristina Gianinni.

Back by popular demand, the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida presents Firebird, with Stravinsky's brilliant score that tells the tale of a magical firebird who helps a heroic prince rescue a beautiful princess. With exuberant dancing, magical special effects, fantastic costumes designed by Jorge Gallardo, new sets by Jim Hammond, and gorgeous backdrops by designer Elena Bondarenko, this magnificent production will enthrall and enchant audiences.
