Ballet Vero Beach in “Founding Fathers” at the VBHS Performing Arts Center
January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Tickets: 772-564-5537 or www.balletverobeach.org
The official opening of our expanded 2019-2020 Season pays tribute to Ballet Vero Beach’s very own founding fathers. Program 1 features a world premiere work by Ballet Master and Principal Dancer Camilo A. Rodriguez, who, throughout our history, has emerged as one of the company’s strongest purveyors of the Ballet Vero Beach aesthetic. Also on the program are Rodriguez’s poignant and emotional solo Harlequin/Pierrot, which makes its main stage debut, and, the company premiere of one of Artistic Director Adam Schnell’s seminal works, Friends and Lovers. Created while Schnell was resident choreographer with Sarasota Ballet, Friends and Lovers uses Max Bruch’s sweeping Concerto for Two Pianos to reflect on humanity’s quest for love and companionship.
