American Repertory Ballet to Perform at RVCC Theatre

American Repertory Ballet will perform at The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg on Saturday, March 14, at 8 p.m. The presentation, part of the Theatre’s Major Artists series, will feature an evening of ballets inspired by the 20th-century works of Sergei Diaghilev’s revolutionary Ballets Russes. The ambitious program features the premiere of Artistic Director Douglas Martin’s Firebird, set to a compelling score by Stravinsky; Martin’s Rite of Spring, also set to music by Stravinsky; and Kirk Peterson’s Afternoon of a Faun (L’après-midi d’un faune), set to Debussy’s provocative score. Patrick Kennedy of Broadway World calls American Repertory Ballet “…a revisitation of the balletic past that was taut, nimble, and modern…” The performance features reserved seating. Tickets cost $25 and $35 each. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the Box Office, 908-725-3420, or order online at www.rvccArts.org.
