LAB to Perform in Grand Park
February 1, 2013
Los Angeles Ballet will perform at Grand Park on July 6, 2013 as part of The Music Center's L.A.'s Rite: Stravinsky, Innovation, and Dance, a festival honoring the 100th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring). The performance is free to the public and will be followed by a discussion with LAB Artistic Directors Colleen Neary and Thordal Christensen.
"Los Angeles Ballet is pleased and honored to present collaborative masterpieces of George Balanchine and Igor Stravinsky for this occasion. George Balanchine was the innovator that changed classical dance forever, and is responsible for what it has become today. Together with his dear friend Igor Stravinsky they created works of pure musical and choreographic genius. These ballets remain timeless, an inspiration to us all," said Christensen and Neary.
