KAREN RUSSO BURKE choreographer
Freudian Slip
and Giselle Act II pas de deux
AMY SEIWERT choreographer Chasing Ghosts
DERMOT BURKE choreographer Still Lifes
AMY SEIWERT choreographer Finding/Almost

Karen Russo Burke's Freudian Slip opens this wildly varied program. A Freudian slip is, by definition, an error in speech, memory, or physical action believed to be caused by the unconscious mind. The concept provides the inspiration for this piece.

One of the great Romantic ballets, Giselle was first performed in Paris in 1841. In Act II Giselle’s spirit is claimed by the the Wilis, a group of supernatural women jilted by their own lovers, who command her to dance her lover to death.

Chasing Ghosts,
by acclaimed choreographer Amy Seiwart, calls us to conjure up memories in our minds that are just out of our grasp.

Still Lifes,
a beautiful ballet choreographed by Dermot Burke, portrays three famous sculptures: The Thinker, The Muse, and The Kiss as they come to life after the museum closes for the night!

Finding/Almost,
also from Amy Seiwert, makes its Dayton premiere on this program. Set to classical music, it incorporates a large cast in Ms. Seiwert's signature style.

DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA CHORUS

DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, otherwise known as Fantastic Symphony: An Episode in the Life of an Artist, is a five-part depiction of a tortured artist who falls wildly in love with a woman he’s seen only once; a woman who completely possesses his passions.

In fact when he thinks of her, he hears vivid music in his head. He imagines himself overdosing on opium and dreaming that he has killed his beloved and is being executed by beheading. It’s music of madness and compulsion.

For the final movement he dreams that he’s at a witches’ sabbath… for his own funeral. Spooky stuff.

In a rarely performed sequel to Symphonie fantastique, Maestro Neal Gittleman has programmed Lélio, or the Return to Life. The piece incorporates orchestra, chorus, featured soloists and spoken text and brings our besotted artist back to reality.

This Handy Calendar Puts the Full Season at Your Fingertips

For the bold 2014–2015 New Horizons Season, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance transports you to an ever-expanding world of emotion and imagination.

> Chronological list of performances


We continue the innovation of our dramatic Signature Events; performances that combine the power of all three art forms. The spectacular “Russian Panorama” opens the season, “Classical Destinations” marks the halfway point at New Year’s Eve, and The Pearl Fishers completes the Opera series in April.

The cherished classics are here: beloved symphonies and concertos, seasonal events like PhilharMonster, Hometown Holidays, Messiah, and The Nutcracker. Some appear in new guises! Dayton Ballet’s Peter Pan will be performed for the first time with the full Philharmonic.

But as important are the new experiences. Our Composer-in-Residence, Stella Sung, teams with Karen Russo Burke for the World Premiere of an exciting new ballet in February 2015. The Opera brings Dead Man Walking to the Midwest for the first time in over a decade. For all four Classical Connections concerts, Neal Gittleman creates a thematic arch with Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich at the focal point. In fact, for those who love Russian music, the season is a treasure trove of wonderment.

Then, to honor Benjamin Britten on the anniversary of his 100th birthday, we welcome Keith Lockhart to conduct the amazing War Requiem. Audience-pleasing artists such as jazz great John Pizzarelli are back, while we also look forward to newcomers to our stage such as Tiempo Libre and Indigo Girls.

Nowhere else in the nation can you experience a dramatic arts collaboration with the range and depth of such new experiences as these. Reserve your seats now and let us, together, chart a course for new horizons.
