From Oct 19th through Oct 26th, 2008. Art Ballet Theatre of Florida opens it’s 2008-2009 season with Vladimir Issaev's version of Igor Stravinsky’s "Firebird" and a world premiere of "Fuga con Pajarillo" in the Amaturo Theater of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, October 19th, to continue October 25th and 26th at the North Miami Beach Theatre.
The ballet tells the tale of a magical firebird that helps a heroic prince rescue a beautiful princess from Katscheii, a sinister force of evil. Stravinsky’s masterpiece includes the Firebird’s exuberant dance followed by variations based on Russian folksongs, the beautiful Round of the Princesses, Katscheii’s rhythmic dance and a romantic lullaby.
The program also includes two neo-classical works by Issaev: "El Encuentro" with music of Albinoni, a several times awarded choreography now performed by Andrey Konkin and beautiful principal dancer Yoshie Oshima and the world premiere of Issaev’s creation for "Fuga con Pajarillo" a very vigorous and energetic dance to the music of Venezuelan composer Aldemaro Romero: a tribute to the recent deceased and famous composer and Issaev’s father in law.
