SARAH’S SONGS PLAYBILL
WELCOME TO A NEW SEASON OF LIVE DANCE PERFORMANCES!
The power and beauty of ballet was never more clear than when it unexpectedly went away. We embark upon this new season invigorated, with joy in our hearts and unbridled excitement to share this invaluable and incomparable artform.
This season I am excited to present a fantastic collection of productions. Through timeless classics, The Nutcracker and Cinderella, we enjoy the mesmerizing stories that foster unparalleled performances worth revisiting year after year, decade after decade. With a new take on agency through a shifted perspective, The Taming of the Shrew explores the inspiration of William Shakespeare’s riotous reflection.
In Sarah’s Songs, we celebrate Austin’s own Sarah and Ernest Butler and their love for the arts with a trio of versatile works: George Balanchine’s neoclassical masterpiece Serenade, Jessica Lang’s contemporary Garden Blue, and the world premiere of my newest piece, I Am The Monument.
Returning to Austin after ten years, Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project follows the inspiring and profoundly impactful story of survivor Naomi Warren. Join us as we follow Naomi’s path and witness her courage, resistance, and resilience.
I hope this season, and the selection of stories we will tell, brings you much happiness and fulfillment. The dancers and I look forward to sharing this remarkable season.
