It continues with Four Seasons – a piece with the music of Verdi first performed at the Mariinsky Theater in Russia. Maestro Vladimir Issaev created the work for four couples, and each pas de deux is a showcase of the extraordinary abilities of each dancer. Taiko, with the enchanting music of classic Japanese drumming, has been an audience favorite since 1998 when Mr. Issaev created this choreography.

A special new addition to the program is “La Favorita”, Mr. Issaev’s choreography to Donizetti’s music, which premiered in September with great success featuring Arts Ballet Theatre and Opera Atelier. The program will conclude with Fuga con Pajarillo, with the music of Aldemaro Romero and the choreography of Vladimir Issaev. The piece first premiered in 2008 as a tribute to the famous Venezuelan composer and most recently was presented in New York at the Latin Choreographers Festival.

Dancers in this program include Kaori Fukui, Jun Tanabe, Lillian Hill, Breeana Flannery, DeeDee Rosner, and Kelvin Rabines, accompanied by guest dancer Simon Sliva.
