WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

L'Amour (love, baby), an evening of passion, lust and flirtation, featuring Dangerous Liaisons, a world premiere by David Palmer, the company premiere of Opposites Distract by Elaine Kudo and Under Covers a world premiere by Amy Seiwert. Dangerous Liaisons, the world premiere by David Palmer, sets the high stakes game of lust, passion and betrayal in 18th century France to the lush music of Antonio Vivaldi's Four Seasons. In the world of the 18th century aristocrats, the Marquise challenges Valmont to seduce an innocent girl before she marries. To offset the darker, gothic romance of Dangerous Liaisons, Opposites Distract, offers a lighter look at it love. It's a story of casual flirtation with a reference to what actually makes a good match. With some sexy salsa inspired movement incorporated into classical ballet, this ballet is sure to leave you happy in love. Under Covers is a ballet that expresses the joy of love in a way that is vibrant. The story express how love is portrayed in our current times, not looking to past centuries. It is a testament to the adage "you never love the same way twice". The music for this ballet is "cover songs", contemporary versions of some of the best love songs from the 60s and 70s.
