Stars & Stripes

February 21-24, 2013

Harman Center for the Arts

With its first Tour-de-Force showcase evening of classical and contemporary works, The Washington Ballet pays tribute to the Presidential inaugural season. Experience magnificent excerpts of classical ballets (Le Corsaire and Don Quixote) and contemporary masterpieces. Set to the marches of John Philip Sousa, the evening’s centerpiece, Balanchine’s exuberantly patriotic Stars and Stripes contains as much pure dance as many full-length ballets.

Cor Perdut

Cor Perdut is a pas de deux inspired by the Catalan version of the song Bir Demet Ysemen, sung by Maria del Mar Bonet. This particular interpretation is based upon a theme with traditional nuances composed by the Armenian M.J. Berberian. Cor Perdut is the third piece choreographed by Duato to music sung by Bonet and was created as a birthday present for the Majorcan singer. To the syncopated and hypnotic rhythm of the Tunisian music, the dancers bring to life Duato’s dynamic, corporal and expressive language with the same anxious fluency transmitted by the voice of Bonet.

“ Duato is regarded as one of world’s leading choreographers, and his works are in repertory everywhere...” – Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times
