I always try to catch the spring dance recital. Last night a romantic yet contemporary piece particularly caught my fancy, one that takes its forwards-backwards costuming notion from my favorite ballet The Goldberg Variations by Jerome Robbins.
According to the program notes, "Nacho Duato’s haunting Por Vos Muero (1996) uses contemporary ballet to evoke 16th-century Spain’s artistic revival poetry by Garcilaso de la Vega set to 15th- and 16th-century-style taped music created by early music specialist Jordi Savall."
But this piece is more than that. The choreography is dynamic, the music verging on flamenco or hip hop at times and the dancing is clean and sprightly.
Catch it if you can.
