Allegro Brilliante by Balanchine with music by Tchaikovsky
By Any Other Name by Amy Seiwert with music by J.S. Bach
New Work by Gen Horiuchi with original music by Toya
The beautiful Kirkwood Performing Arts Center is the new home for Saint Louis Ballet’s annual Valentine’s weekend programs, this season featuring outstanding choreography and live music. George Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante is what the “father of American ballet” called “everything I know about classical ballet in 13 minutes.” Amy Seiwert, one of today’s most creative and sought-after ballet choreographers, has created the dynamic By Any Other Name, set to music by J.S. Bach.
Do It For Love concludes with a new ballet by Gen Horiuchi and New York based composer TOYA.
Horiuchi, Saint Louis Ballet’s artistic and executive director, has staged a considerable number of classical story ballets for the company and has created crowd-pleasing contemporary pieces as well. His ballets have been
performed by Saint Louis Ballet as well as his ballet company in his native Japan.
Do it for love!
