GERALD ARPINO choreographer – Confetti
SEPTIME WEBRE choreographer – Fluctuating Hemlines
MELISSA BARAK choreographer – Tonal Interceptions
KAREN RUSSO BURKE choreographer – No Strings Attached
Confetti is a fun classical ballet choreographed by the late Gerald Arpino, co-founder and former Artistic Director of the Joffrey Ballet. Three couples dressed in classic dance attire take the stage in a quintessential ballet, punctuated by big leaps and powered by exquisite partnering.
Fluctuating Hemlines returns after a the historic 2013 run on the program Celebration! honoring Dayton Ballet’s 75th season. Choreographed by Septime Webre, it is an edgy ballet that explores facades erected by individuals designed to conceal what they wish others not see.
Then, Dayton Ballet proudly presents two world-premiere ballets. This first is an original ballet by the engaging Melissa Barak, choreographer and former critically acclaimed dancer with New York City Ballet. Finally, the spotlight shines on Karen Russo Burke as she premieres a brand-new ballet, choreographed with each dancer’s individual strengths in mind. Karen’s extensive experience on stage gives her the perfect perspective to create a new work of art that allows each of her dancers the opportunity to truly shine.

Love may be the most powerful force in the world, but jealousy exerts a dark power all its own.
Verdi's penultimate masterpiece, Otello, turns on three important characters - the forceful Otello, his beautiful wife Desdemona, and his crafty, unscrupulous rival Iago. The orchestra is also a key player in the drama, and the orchestral writing reveals Verdi’s growth in the silent decade following Aida. Opening with a dramatic storm in the orchestra that foreshadows what is to follow, Otello sweeps along as the evil Iago gradually hatches his plot to make Otello unjustly fear that his beloved Desdemona is betraying him.
Shakespeare's story, Verdi's music, superb cast, lavish sets, big musical score: this is a superlative experience. Join us for your Opera company's enthralling first performance of this grand opera.
