Folsom Lake

College’s MOSAIC

Dance Company

performs a

variety of dance

styles including

ballet, jazz, tap,

hip-hop, lyrical,

contemporary,

African, and theatrical dance.

The name derives from the group

representation of a MOSAIC of

diverse people, with different bodies,

colors, shapes and sizes, ethnicities,

religious affiliations, and ideological

positionings… a MOSAIC not just of

dance, but of life! Each semester is

capped off with the signature “Evening

cast. Since 2007, FLC’s dance program

has trained MOSAIC dancers who have

had the opportunity to tour to places

such as Hawaii, New York, and Los

Angeles as performers.

Music

Folsom Lake College music ensembles,

solo performance studies, and creative

music studies provide students with the

opportunity to develop performance

skills by the study of music through

supported by FLC Visual Arts faculty.

Each spring, students have the

opportunity of a

public exhibition

with the FLC

Bank of America

Gallery.

2019 Exhibitions

Folsom Lake College Art Alumni Show

May 24 - July 14, 2019

The FLC Visual Arts Alumni Invitational

exhibition at the Bank of America Gallery

features a diverse range of works from

representational to non-objective, as well

as a variety of media. Each artist’s body

of work captures the essence and investigative

nature of the artist’s personal

journey. The exhibition is representative

of each artist’s aesthetics and reflects

their experiential influences.

Select FLC alumni were invited to exhibit

their work. The artists in this exhibition

are a diverse group. Some have gone on

to pursue a B.A., M.A., or M.F.A., while

others jumped straight into the job

market. The artworks reveal fascinating

personal stories and trace the artistic

and professional trajectory of their lives.

Many of these former FLC students keep

in touch with their FLC instructors and all

value the importance of their education at

FLC, showing their ability to shine in the

contemporary art world.

A searching and deepening desire for the

arts is what connects these artists. These

individuals exemplify the vibrancy and

multiple dimensions of the current art

world.

knowledge, work on projects, network, and build things. At Folsom Lake College,

it's is a collaborative studio space, an informal combination of lab and workshop,

and a creative environment for learning through hands-on exploration.

Innovation Center programs and resources enable students from all disciplines

to tackle open-ended, real world challenges, preparing them for careers

involving innovation, creativity, and invention and helping them to become more

competitive in a rapidly changing job market.

technologies, including three dimensional-printing, laser cutting/engraving,

computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining, bioprinting, virtual reality,

MARK HUMMEL'S 2019 SOUTHERN HARP BLOWOUT

with Bobby Rush, Kenny Neal , James Harman and Jumpin Johnny Sansone, and

Mark Hummel’s Golden State Lone Star featuring Anson Funderburgh

Thursday, January 17, 2019; 7:30 pm

Grammy Nominee Mark Hummel returns and, as always, his

guests are stellar: Bobby Rush is a 2017 Grammy winner, Blues

Hall of Fame Inductee, 10 Ten Blues Music Award Winner, B.B.

King Entertainer of the Year, and Rolling Stone “King of the

Chitlin’ Circuit” winner. Kenny Neal is a second-generation

southern Louisiana bluesman, 2017 Grammy-nominee and

winner of two Blues Music Awards for his Bloodline CD. Jumpin’

Johnny Sansone studied harmonica with Junior Wells and

James Cotton; his former band Jumpin Johnny’s Blues Party

was the foundation of the New Orleans-based The Iguanas.

Appearing is blues supergroup Golden State/Lone Star Blues

Revue. The Southern Blowouts are dedicated to the late Lazy

Lester, who was on many of these shows since 2004.

BIOS

BOBBY RUSH

Bobby is a 2017 Grammy winner,

Blues Hall of Fame Inductee, 10 Times

Blues Music Award Winner, B.B. King

Entertainer of the Year and Rolling Stone

"King of the Chitlin' Circuit” winner.

Naming your album after a song entitled

"Porcupine Meat” may seem a little

unusual unless you’re Bobby Rush, who

earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit entitled “Chicken

Heads.” He elaborates on his recent composition: “If a lady won’t

treat me right, but she doesn’t want anyone else to have me,

that is hard to digest.” Hence the lyric, “too fat to eat, too lean to

throw away.” Porcupine Meat is Rush’s debut release for Rounder

Records, and one of the best recordings of his astonishing 60-

plus year career. Released in late 2016 the album went on to

garner a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album after

a debut at #1 on the Living Blues radio chart. Rush estimates that

he has cut over 300 songs since he first began making music.

He has been honored with four Grammy nominations, as well as

41 nominations and 10 awards from the Blues Foundation, and

a 2006 induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.

But make no mistake: Rush is not your typical octogenarian. At

age 84, he exudes the energy of a 20 year old, and is on the road

for over 200 dates a year. His hectic tour schedule has earned

him the affectionate title “King of the Chitlin’ Circuit.” Bobby

completed US dates with the star-studded Take Me To The River

Revue w/Charlie Musselwhite, William Bell & other Memphis

star’s promoting the documentary of the same name last year.

Rush has traveled the globe, and has performed in such faraway

places as Japan and Beirut. In 2007, he earned the distinction

of being the first blues artist to play at the Great Wall of China.

His renowned stage act features his famed shake dancers,

who personify his funky blues and the ribald humor that he has

cultivated during the course of his storied career.

Born Emmet Ellis, Jr. in Homer, Louisiana, he adopted the

stage name Bobby Rush out of respect for his father, a pastor.

According to Rush, his parents never talked about the blues

being the devil’s music. “My daddy never told me to sing the

blues, but he also didn’t tell me to not sing the blues. I took that

as a green light.”

Rush built his first guitar when he was a youngster. “I didn’t

MARK HUMMEL'S 2019 SOUTHERN HARP BLOWOUT

continued

know where to buy one, even if I had the money. I was a country

boy,” he says. After seeing a picture of a guitar in a magazine,

he decided to make one by attaching the top wire of a broom to

a wall and fretting it with a bottle. He also got some harmonica

lessons from his father. He eventually acquired a real guitar,

and started playing in juke joints as a teenager, when his family

briefly relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas. The fake moustache

Rush wore made club owners believe he was old enough to

gain entry into their establishments. While he was living in

Little Rock, Rush’s band, which featured Elmore James, had a

residency at a nightspot called Jackrabbit.

During the mid-1950s, Rush relocated to Chicago to pursue

his musical career and make a better life for himself. It was

there that he started to work with Earl Hooker, Luther Allison,

and Freddie King sat in with many of his musical heroes, such

as Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, and

Little Walter. Rush eventually began leading his own band in the

1960s. He also started to craft his own distinct style of funky

blues, and recorded a succession of singles for a various small

labels. It wasn’t until the early 1970’s that Rush finally scored a

hit with “Chicken Heads.” More recordings followed, including

an album for Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff’s Philadelphia

International Label.

Rush relocated one final time to Jackson, Mississippi in the

early 1980s. He was tired of the cold up north, and he realized

that setting up his base of operations directly in the center of

the South would make it easier to perform in nearby cities

on weekends. More indie label recordings followed. Songs

like “Sue, A Man Can Give (But He Sure Can’t Take It),” “What’s

Good For The Goose Is Good For The Gander Too,” and” I Ain’t

Studdin’ You” became regional jukebox favorites in juke joints

throughout the region, and many of those songs are still fan

favorites that are an integral part of his live repertoire. Make

no mistake, Bobby Rush is both a Bluesman and an entertainer

of the highest order!

KENNY NEAL

If you want to experience the "Real Deal,"

take time out to find Kenny Neal. One

of the strongest modern proponents

of Baton Rouge swamp blues, Kenny

Neal is a second-generation southern

Louisiana bluesman who is cognizant

of the region's venerable blues tradition

and imaginative enough to steer it in

fresh directions. Neal was born on

October 14, 1957 in New Orleans. His dad, harpist Raful Neal,

was a Baton Rouge blues mainstay whose pals included Buddy

Guy and Slim Harpo (the latter gave three-year-old Kenny his

first harmonica).

At age 13, Neal was playing in his father's band, and at 17,

landed a job playing bass for Buddy Guy. The guitarist recruited

some of his talented siblings to form the Neal Brothers Blues

Band up in Toronto (brother Noel later played bass behind

James Cotton; five other Neal brothers also play in various

bands) before returning stateside. In 1987, Kenny Neal cut

his debut LP for Florida producer Bob Greenlee, an updated

swamp feast initially released by Kingsnake Records as Bio

on the Bayou. The following year, Alligator Records signed

Neal and reissued the debut under the title Big News from

Baton Rouge!! Young Neal was on his way. Neal's sizzling guitar

work, sturdy harp, and gravelly, aged-beyond-his-years vocals

served him well, and he cut four albums for Alligator Records

between 1989 and 1994. An acclaimed 1991 stint on Broadway

in a production of Mule Bone found him performing acoustic

versions of Langston Hughes' poetry set to music by Taj Mahal.

In 1998, Neal moved from Alligator to the blues division of

the jazz-based Telarc Records, releasing three albums for

the label: Blues Fallin' Down Like Rain (1998), What You Got

(2000), and One Step Closer (2001). In the new millennium, Neal

recorded sets for a variety of independent labels, including Easy

Meeting (a 2003 collaboration with Billy Branch), Double Take

(2004, a one-shot return to Alligator), and A Tribute to Slim Harpo

and Raful Neal (released in 2005 for True Life Entertainment).

Three years later, Neal hooked up with Blind Pig Records and

released Let Life Flow in 2008, once again incorporating his

gritty Louisiana roots with a sophisticated Chicago/Memphis

soul approach. A second Blind Pig release, Hooked on Your Love,

appeared two years later in 2010.

In 2015, Neal released his first holiday-themed album, I'll

Be Home for Christmas. It was his first album for Cleopatra

Records, which also issued his critically acclaimed release,

Bloodline in 2016.

Kenny's 2016 release, Bloodline, was nomimated for a 2017

Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album and also won two

2017 BMAs (Blues Music Awards); one for Best Contemporary

Blues Album and the other for Best Contemporary Male Blues

Artist. Kenny Neal, a true living blues Legend is THE REAL

DEAL and more poised than ever to deliver the blues like no

one else can!

JAMES HARMAN

James was born and raised in Anniston,

Alabama-quickly picked up on the black

blues and soul music being played on

juke boxes and the radio. He sang in

the church choir until age 16 when his

family moved to Panama City, Florida,

where he found himself surrounded

by like-minded blues lovers. Wearing a

fake moustache, young James slipped

into a still segregated black nightclub to see Little Junior

Parker’s show. He was totally overtaken by the blues and soon

became a regular, known as “That boy who sings like a man”

by patrons.

While still in his teens, he started playing juke joints and

dance clubs throughout the South. His performances became

legendary-he was “tapped” by talent scouts, signed and taken

to Atlanta, Georgia in 1964 to begin his recording career at age

18. He had a series of nine singles (45 RPM records) released

during the mid to late 60's on obscure southern labels. He tried

several restarts in new home bases including Chicago in ’65,

New York in ’66, Miami in ’68 and New Orleans in ‘69.

During his stay in Miami Harman was befriended by fellow

record collectors Henry Vestine, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite

of Canned Heat, who persuaded him to move to California,

MARK HUMMEL'S 2019 SOUTHERN HARP BLOWOUT

continued

promising to help him get re-started. Harman made his move

to SoCal in 1970, and true to their word, Canned Heat insisted

on Harman’s Icehouse Blues Band as their opening act on many

big shows. Icehouse Blues Band became established at venues

such as The Golden Bear, The Ash Grove, The Troubadour and

The Lighthouse, which all booked real blues artists.

James Harman was soon in demand for his own shows, as well

as backing every living blues artist who was touring without

a band. He also opened literally hundreds of shows for artist

who did have their own band. Icehouse Blues Band was a real

working blues band. In 1978 James tired of using band names

and started billing his act as James Harman Band.

Some alumni include Phil Alvin, Bill Bateman, Gene Taylor,

David “Kid” Ramos, Michael “Hollywood Fats” Mann, Stephen

Taylor Hodges and Jeff “Big Dad” Turmes. All of these players

did long stints in the Harman Band. James is often cited as

a band leader who gave many now famous bluesmen their

start. Harman stopped ground touring in 2000 and now only

takes blues festival dates around the world. Nathan James has

been James Harman’s regular band guitar player since 1997

when he was 19 years old... he turned 37 in 2015 and he's still

Harman's favorite! Nathan is also James’ recording engineer

and co-producer on his own projects, as well as projects they

produce for other artists.

James Harman’s side project: Bamboo Porch Revue features

guitarist Nathan James playing rollicking, low-down, juke-joint

blues over James Michael Tempo’s Afro-Cuban percussion,

Troy Sandow’s sparse, pulsating acoustic bass and Marty

Dodson's masterful drumming. Through his long career starting

in the early 60s James Harman has built up an enormous

song catalog and had 20 of his original songs used in movies

and television. He has been nominated for 20 pestiferous W.

C. Handy (Blues Foundation) awards. He was inducted into

the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, and he is the harmonica

player of choice on many ZZ Top releases, as well as live with

them on many international TV shows. James Harman has

had 33 releases, on many different labels; he currently tours

every spring, summer and fall, working in as many as 29

countries. Harman was nominated for a Grammy Award, and

won two Blues Music Awards for his contribution to the Blind

Pig release, Remembering Little Walter in 2014. He is a one of

a kind song writer, producer, musician, showman, vocalist and

internationally known bluesman.

in 2015 Electro-Fi release Bonetime was nominated for an

unprecedented five BMA awards: Song Of The Year, Album Of

The Year, Traditional Album Of The Year, Harmonica Player and

Traditional Blues Male Artist Of The Year.

Harman’s newest Electrofi Cd is FinePrint. He appears on ZZ

Top leader Billy F Gibbons’s newest CD, Big Bad Blues. and he

also appears on Gibbons tour dates.

JUMPIN' JOHNNY SANSONE

Jumpin' Johnny Sansone was raised in

West Orange, New Jersey. His father had

played the saxophone in Dave Brubeck's

band during World War II and by the time

he was age 12, his son had learned to play

the saxophone, guitar, and harmonica

and saw Howlin' Wolf in concert. He

later studied blues harmonica playing

by studying both Junior Wells and James Cotton. Sansone

attended West Orange High School. He left New Jersey in 1975

on a swimming scholarship at a college in Colorado. Sansone

toured in the 1980s supporting Robert Lockwood, Jr., David

"Honeyboy” Edwards and Jimmy Rogers. His former band

Jumpin Johnny's Blues Party was the foundation of the New

Orleans offshoot group The Iguanas. Johnny also toured with

guitarist Ronnie Earl. Most recently he was part of Tab Benoit's

Voice Of The Wetlands Revue. Johnny was featured in HBO's

Treme in a scene at House Of Blues.

MARK HUMMEL GOLDEN STATE/LONESTAR BLUES REVUE will

be the backing band for the featured artists with Mark Hummel

acting as Master of Ceremonies and Band Leader.

Blues Supergroup Mark Hummel Golden State - Lone Star

Blues Revue, featuring Grammy-nominated Harp Blower/

Vocalist/ Bandleader Mark Hummel with guitar legend Mike

Keller - guitar (Fabulous Thunderbirds/Marcia Ball/The Keller

Brothers), another guitar sensation Rusty Zinn (Jimmy Rogers,

Kim Wilson), drummer Wes Starr and bassist RW Grigsby

is an all-star cross country melding of California musicians

Hummel and Grigsby with Texans Funderburgh, Keller and

Starr. Golden State - Lone Star Blues Revue's self-titled debut

album (Electro-Fi Records/April 2016), was recorded by Kid

Andersen at the famed Greaseland Studio in San Jose, CA, and

co-produced by Funderburgh & Hummel.

MARK HUMMEL

Harmonica man/singer/songwriter/

bandleader/author/impresario mark

hummel was born in New Haven, CT but

moved to Los Angeles as a newborn.

Hummel took up an interest in blues

harp & rock-blues music in high school

but soon discovered the originators like

Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson &

Little Walter. Soon after, Hummel frequented the Ash Grove club

on Melrose Ave. in LA where he saw (in a three month period)

three blues legends he would later work with on a regular

basis; Charlie Musselwhite, Brownie McGhee (w/Sonny Terry) &

James Cotton. By 1985, Mark Hummel's Blues Survivors hit the

road full time and continue till the present (Hummel's memoir,

Big Road Blues: 12 Bars on I-80 recounts many road exploits).

In 2014 Blind Pig Records released Remembering Little Walter

(a recording of a Hummel Blues Harp Blowout). The CD was

nominated for a Grammy Award and won two Blues Music

Awards. Hummel's latest CD is the brand new all instrumental

HarpBreaker, with GSLS on some of it.

ANSON FUNDERBURGH

Long time Golden State/Lonestar Blues

Revue guitarist Anson Funderburgh was

born in 1954 in Plano, Texas where the

youngster first picked up the guitar in

high school and was hit by the blues bug

through Jimmy Reed Lightnin' Hopkins.

By 1978 he had started Anson and

the Rockets with vocalist/harmonica

player Darrell Nulisch with the group being signed to Black Top

Records a couple of years later. In 1986 Nulisch was replaced

by Blind Sam Myers who stayed with the group until his death

in 2006. The Rockets went on to win ten Blues Music Awards

(formerly known as the W.C. Handy Blues Awards). It was widely

regarded as the highest honor for blues artists in the United

States. Funderburgh has played with Delbert McClinton (and

joins his Sandy Beaches Cruise every year), Boz Scaggs, Snooks

Eaglin, Earl King and Jimmy Buffet. Funderburgh is also the

inspiration for Beavis of Beavis and Butthead as Mike Judge, the

creator of those characters, worked as a Rocket for three years.

MIKE KELLER

Mike grew up in a musical family, his

parents were musicians and his father

played jazz, soul and rock in local bands

around the Fargo area. Growing up he

was influenced by Hendrix and Stevie

Ray Vaughan and through them learned

about the masters of the blues. Some of

Mike's influences include Kenny Burrell,

Freddie, Albert and B.B. King, Otis Rush and Jimmy Reed and

later the slide techniques of Elmore James, Earl Hooker and

Robert Nighthawk. These influences are apparent in his guitar

playing which is pretty amazing! After getting an offer to play

with Double Trouble (and becoming the first guitaist since Stevie

Ray Vaughn), he moved back to Texas. "I did the Double Trouble

gig for about two and half years, then played with Doyle Bramhall

for four years, Marcia Ball for a year and a half, and then got the

call to join the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

Rounding out the GOLDEN STATE-LONE STAR BLUES REVUE

are RW GRIGSBY on bass & famed Austin, Texas drummer WES

STARR. Between these two old Rome, GA natives, they've played

with a who's who of famed musicians - Omar & the Howlers,

Junior Brown, Jimmy Vaughan, Asleep At The Wheel, Gary

Primich, Kim Wilson, Mike Morgan, Carlene Carter, Hal Ketchum,

Earl King, James Cotton and many more!

FRANK BAUM (Author) In 1900, L. Frank Baum wrote The

have been produced over the years. Baum was born to

a wealthy oil family in 1856 and endured many financial

failures, including a chain of theaters, a small variety store

and a newspaper. He wrote 14 tales, creating a series about

the enchanted land of Oz prior to his death in 1914. Several

other authors continued the magical saga, creating a 40

volume series. It is estimated that Baum’s best-loved tale of

Dorothy’s journey through the world of Oz has entertained

audiences totaling more than one billion people throughout

the world.

HAROLD ARLEN (Composer) and E.Y. HARBURG (Lyricist) hold

a very special place in the world of movie and stage musicals.

Together, their talents have brought new dimensions to a

remarkable roster of successful cinematic and theatrical

attractions. In The Wizard of Oz, Harburg and Arlen created a

score and songs which are as fresh and meaningful today as

ringer, “Ding! Dong! The Witch is Dead!,” Harburg and Arlen

take the music-lover and the fairy-tale-fancier down the

yellow brick road to adventure, enchantment, laughter and

some warm whimsical comments on the human condition.

It’s a story, a message, a sheer magic which delights each

time it is retold.

WHO’S WHO IN THE CAST

Chicago (Roxie Hart, Theatre By the Sea), Paper Mill Playhouse,

Sacramento Music Circus, TUTS, PCLO, KC Starlight. BFA Elon.

Love and light.

MARSHALL BRICKMAN (Book). Films (author or co-author):

Sleeper, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Manhattan Murder Mystery, For

the Boys, Intersection; (as writer/ director): Simon, Lovesick, The

Manhattan Project, Sister Mary Explains It All. Television: “The

Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” (head writer), “The Dick

Cavett Show” (head writer/co-producer). He has published in

The New York Times, The New Yorker, Playboy and other periodicals

and was the 2006 recipient of the Writers Guild of America’s

Ian McClellan Hunter Lifetime Achievement Award. Jersey

Boys, his first venture into musical theatre (with co-author

Rick Elice), won four Tony Awards including Best Musical. The

Addams Family, his second theatrical venture (also with Rick),

ran over 700 performances on Broadway and had national and

international tours. Upcoming projects include musicals about

Roy Rogers and the Woodstock Festival of 1969.

RICK ELICE (Book) co-wrote Jersey Boys (winner 2006 Tony

Award, 2007 Grammy Award and 2009 Olivier Award for Best

Musical) with the great Marshall Brickman. His play, Peter and

the Starcatcher, received nine 2012 Tony Award nominations

(including two for Rick), won five (more than any play of the season),

and is one of the most produced plays in North America.

Also on Broadway, Elice wrote The Addams Family (with Marshall

Brickman, music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa), which also

had productions on tour across North America and in Europe

and South America. Getting ready for Broadway in the fall

of 2018, The Cher Show, directed by Jason Moore. Heartfelt

thanks to those whose work in the theater makes him grateful

for the day he was born: Sondheim, Stoppard, Bennett, Prince,

Fosse, Robbins, Nichols, Tune, Nunn, Laurents, Stone, Kushner,

Taymor, Papp, Schumacher, Schneider, David, Strong, Gaudio,

Valli, McAnuff, Trujillo, Seller, Suarez, Moore, Gattelli, Coyne,

Brickman, Timbers and, eternally, Roger Rees. Rick thinks

about them a lot. He never thought about Jersey much. He does

now.

BOB GAUDIO (Composer) wrote his first hit, “Who Wears Short

Shorts,” at 15, for the Royal Teens, and then went on to become

a founding member of The Four Seasons and the band’s principal

songwriter. He also produced the hit “You Don’t Bring Me

Flowers” for Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand (Grammy

nomination, Record of the Year) as well as six albums for

Diamond, including The Jazz Singer. Other producing credits

include albums for Frank Sinatra, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross,

Michael Jackson and the soundtrack for the film of Little Shop

of Horrors. Several songs co-written with Bob Crewe have

been cover hits for such artists as the Tremeloes (“Silence

Is Golden”), the Walker Brothers (“The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine

Anymore”) and Lauryn Hill (“Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”). With

his wife, Judy Parker, Gaudio produced and co-wrote the Who

Loves You album for The Four Seasons and one of Billboard’s

longest-charted singles (54 weeks), “Oh, What a Night.” A high

point in his career came in 1990 when, as a member of the original

Four Seasons, Gaudio was inducted into the Rock and Roll

Hall of Fame. In 1995, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall

of Fame, which hailed him as “a quintessential music-maker.” To

this day, Bob Gaudio and Frankie Valli still maintain their partnership...on

a handshake.

BOB CREWE (Lyricist). “New York was pregnant in the fifties,”

says Bob Crewe, “gestating with possibilities.” Crewe and music

partner Frank Slay became independent writer-producers when

the category hadn’t yet been invented. In 1957, they wrote and

produced “Silhouettes” for The Rays, which skyrocketed to #1.

Suddenly, producers in demand, they launched Freddie Cannon’s

“Tallahassee Lassie” and Billy & Lillie’s “Lah Dee Da.” Crewe’s

1960’s unprecedented producing success with The Four Seasons

birthed a new sound, striking a major chord in American pop.

“Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Candy Girl,”

“Ronnie” – all smashes! When lead Frankie Valli demanded a

solo turn, Crewe and Bob Gaudio wrote (and Crewe produced)

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” which eventually became the

century’s fifth most-played song. Crewe ran hot with artists from

Vicki Carr, Oliver and Lesley Gore to Mitch Ryder, co-writing with

Charles Fox the soundtrack for Jane Fonda’s film Barbarella.

Then his own Bob Crewe Generation exploded with “Music

to Watch Girls By.” In 1972 Bob was in L.A., where he revived

Frankie Valli with “My Eyes Adored You” by Crewe and Kenny

Nolan. They also co-wrote Patti LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade”

(#1, July ’75), which was a hit again on the soundtrack of Moulin

Rouge (#1, June ’01)...David Ritz

DES McANUFF (Director) is a two-time Tony Award-winning

director and former artistic director of the Stratford Festival. He

is also Director Emeritus of La Jolla Playhouse, where during his

tenure he directed over 35 productions of classics, new plays

and musicals. Broadway: Doctor Zhivago, Jesus Christ Superstar,

Guys and Dolls, Aaron Sorkin’s The Farnsworth Invention, Jersey

family members James Elliot Love and Jean-Michel Quincey. Friends to everyone they

met, James and Jean-Michel stood at the heart of all that is good about the theatrical

community. They will be missed, but their spirits abide.

ARTIST BIO

KALANI PE‘A

Kalani Pe'a sings everything from classical, musical, ballads,

R&B, soul and, of course, Hawaiian music, displaying his

wide-ranging talents as a songwriter and music composer. It

started at age four when Pe'a was diagnosed with a speech

impediment; his mother Pua Leonard “introduced my son to

singing and music to help him pronounce his words.” Leonard

and Pe'a’s father Arthur (Ata) Pe'a, who comes from a musical

family, encouraged Kalani to take vocal lessons and choir. By

the time he was 8 years old, Pe'a was winning numerous talent

competitions statewide.

At age 18, he won Brown Bags to Stardom, and won first place

in the National Association Teachers of Singing Competition

in Colorado/Wyoming chapter, in men’s classical and musical

divisions, while a student at Colorado Mesa University

(Mesa State College), where he received his degree in Mass

Communications. “From speech therapy to being a college

graduate in communications,” noted Pe'a’s father with humor,

“Kalani can’t stop talking and singing.”

In the process of planning his debut album, Pe'a contacted

Dave Tucciarone, a 13-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-Winning

Engineer and Producer based in Honolulu. “I had to travel every

weekend from Maui to meet Dave for seven months, and just

sing my heart out,” Pe'a noted. The hard work paid off with the

2017 Grammy® win, followed by his first Na Hoku Award. This

successful collaboration continued with Kalani’s second CD,

No ‘Ane‘i [We Belong Here], garnering rave reviews and a 2019

Grammy Nomination. Raves award-winning vocalist Darlene

Honolulu Magazine quoted Kalani relating to his Hawaiian

cultural foundation: “From a Hawaiian perspective, we don’t

believe in just Kūlia I ka Nu’u, striving for the highest mountain

and you get to the top and that’s the end. We continue to soar

and continue to climb. In Hawaiian, we call it ‘akahi a ho’omaka,

the beginning of every journey. We don’t believe there’s a start

and finish line, like a marathon. This is just the start for me, even

though I’ve been singing for nearly 30 years.”

BAND

AIAU KOA, guitar, is known for his performances with many of

Hawai‘i’s leading artists, including Keali‘i Reichel and Kalani

Pe‘a. He is also an instructor and practitioner of the martial

arts style of Ai Pilau Kenpo, drawn to its heart and soul that

exemplifies the spirit of "ohana" or family.

KALANI MILES, guitar, was raised in Hawai‘i among many

diverse cultures, including his own Samoan background. An

accomplished guitarist, he has come to appreciate various

genres of music, old and new, traditional and contemporary.

WAILAU RYDER, bass, was born on O‘ahu but grew up in the

Puna region of the Hawai‘i Island. One of his major influences

was his aunt, the well-known musician and Hawaiian educator

Lei'ohu Ryder. He is also a gifted vocalist and slack key guitarist.

IMPERFECT DANCERS COMPANY

ANNE FRANK — WORDS FROM THE SHADOWS

Thursday, January 31, 2019; 7:30 pm

IMPERFECT DANCERS COMPANY brings to ANNE FRANK

-WORDS FROM THE SHADOWS, an inspirational tribute to a young

woman’s life, spiritual strength and humanity in the midst of the

darkest time in the 20th century: the Second World War. This

work of extraordinary beauty and grace honors the memory

of Anne Frank whose touching story has moved and inspired

generations all over the world. This special tribute was created

to commemorate the seventieth anniversary of Anne Frank’s

arrest and deportation. The powerful and moving production

begins after the liberation of Auschwitz. Anne’s father, the only

survivor of the Frank family, returns to the Secret Annex where

he receives his daughter’s diary from Miep Gies. While reading

it, he discovers aspects of her personality that he did not expect.

He relives their absconding and the tragic events that followed.

ABOUT THE SHOW

ANNE FRANK: Words from the Shadows

The diary of Anne Frank invites us to think about the dark period

in our history, seen through the eyes of an adolescent. It warns

of the dangers of intolerance. This theme is still relevant today,

because we are still disturbed by anything that deviates from

our own opinions of what is “good” or “normal.”

"It is impossible to understand certain things," said Primo Levi,

writer and Auschwitz survivor "but it is necessary to be aware,

and it is our duty to keep their memory alive." Asked whether the

story of Anne Frank is more important than that of the millions

of other victims, Levi replied: "One single Anne Frank moves us

more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but

whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better

that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all

those people, we would not be able to live.”

"Anne Frank, parole dall'ombra" ("Anne Frank, Words From

the Darkness") is dedicated to Anne Frank, and was made to

commemorate the seventieth anniversary of her arrest and

deportation.

Dancers: ImPerfect Dancers Company

Decor and costumes: Ina Broeckx

ABOUT THE DANCE COMPANY

IMPERFECT DANCERS COMPANY was founded by Walter

Matteini and Ina Broeckx in January 2009. Since its inception,

this eight-strong contemporary dance company has proven

tirelessly creative as it evolves, expands its repertoire, and

delights audiences with its sensitive, original and compelling

performances. In doing so, it has secured its rightful place in

the artistic landscape.

The source of that creativity and what makes the company so

uniquely different is its conscious diversity. As dancers and

human beings we all start from imperfection constantly striving

for the unattainable; individual and collective perfection. It is this

paradox that is encapsulated in the company’s name.

In this pursuit of excellence and precision, IMPERFECT DANCERS

COMPANY sets ever-higher standards and pushes itself to

new pinnacles of achievement. In just five years, the Company

has regularly toured throughout Europe [Germany, France,

the Netherlands, Poland, Turkey, Belgium], and has taken its

passionate and intensely physical repertoire to Africa, South

America, Canada, the US, the Festival de danse de Cannes,

Benefit Gala for the Alzheimer Stuttgart, Tanz-Tage Festival

Regensburg, Kultur Tempel Festival Karlsruhe, Chutzpah

Festival Vancouver, Cali International Dance Festival, Visa2Dance

Tanzania, just to name a few. ImPerfect Dancers Company has

been the resident dance company of the Pisa Opera and Ballet

Theatre in Italy since the 2011 season.

Artistic Director Walter Matteini is a rapidly rising star of the

European contemporary scene. His work is deeply human

and accessible, energetic and emotional, and pushes past

conventional interpretation and breathes fresh life into music

and stories which inspire him.

Co-Director and Co-Choreographer Ina Broeckx, a native of

Belgium, has had an extraordinary career throughout Europe

and is the Company’s costume and set designer as well as one

of the dance members. “Our choreographic language is intensely

physical and athletic, and hinges on our quest to explore and

understand the human soul in all its different facets. Our work

seeks to create an emotional connection with the audience.

While we usually draw inspiration from history and literature,

our choice of themes is always guided by careful consideration of

severe factors: the cultural depth, the potential to be developed

in an original and modern fashion, the artistic interest and

the emotions they evoke. When we translate our ideas into

movement we always start with the music and then the sole

purpose is to convey emotion.”

Mix brilliant dancers from around the world, the deep passion of

Italy and the vision of one of the great emerging choreographers

of the century. The result is the perfection of IMPERFECT

to distinguish reality from fiction. Terrible events do not shock

us as they should. This interaction with the soldiers catapults

the audience into the historical period.

Scene 3 – Traditional Jewish music “Improvisation”

From the darkness of the stage the sound of a violin slowly

emerges, silencing the soldiers. As the musician is lit, the

audience can see him, dressed in his ''stripped pajamas''. While

he plays, the stage lights slowly reveal the secrets the stage

holds. There is a striking contrast between the violence and the

brutality of the soldiers and the purity and beauty of the music.

Scene 2 – Interaction with the audience

Soldiers enter the auditorium.

We decided to introduce this scene for two different reasons.

The first one is historical: German soldiers used to raid

theaters during performances, seizing Jewish artists, political

opponents, etc. The second one, and more important to us: we

The two young women struggle to survive, but the fatigue and

ill-treatment are too much for them to bear. Margot is the first

to succumb. She urges Anne to go without her, but Anne does

not want to leave her. Margot dies and Anne, now left alone, also

surrenders to death.

On the left side of the stage: the group of families, some of the

members with their backs to the audience (i.e. those who are

already dead). Still alive, facing the audience, are Peter, Auguste

and Otto. On the right side of the stage: Anne and Margot begin

their death march. In the end, Anne lies down on the lifeless

body of her sister and dies. Then Auguste turns her back to the

audience, followed by Peter, as the both slip into death. Otto is

the only survivor.

Scene 17 – Bach AIR Adagio on the 4th String

Back to Otto's present.

He has finished reading the diary. Anne gave her words to the

world – words that have remained in the shadows until now. She

is free at last. The audience witnesses a fictitious, hypothetical

farewell between Otto and Anne. The farewell that never took

place. The farewell of a young girl who has not had time to live

her life.

TRACY BYRD -TBYRD25: THE TOUR

Tuesday, February 5, 2019; 7:30 pm

of these single's reached the Top Five on the Charts. It was at this same

time that TNN Outdoors recruited Byrd as the TV Host of their Weekend

Outdoor Broadcast. Tracy, a well known outdoorsman, was perfect for

the job and continued his hosting responsibilities for three years.

At this point in his career, Tracy Byrd, was looking for a change in labels,

but still was under contract with MCA Records who were preparing

a release of Keepers: Greatest Hits containing all the hit's from Byrd's

catalog of songs. The album quickly earned another Gold Record award

for Byrd but he was trying to persuade MCA to let him out of his contract

so he could pursue a different direction. MCA finally allowed Byrd out

of his contract and he quickly signed with RCA Records and got to work

on a new project, It's About Time that would be released in November of

1999 and would reach the top 10 quickly with the single "Put Your Hand

In Mine." Byrd has said that this album is the most Traditional Album he

ever released and therefore his favorite.

Tracy Byrd became a household name on the Country Music Scene

in 1993 when his third single, called "Holdin' Heaven," off of his MCA

Records, self-titled debut album, hit #1 on the Billboard Country Charts.

The album also included the remake hit of Johnny Paycheck's "Someone

to Give my Love to" cementing Byrd as a Traditional Country Troubadour!!

The Debut Album went on to be certified Gold, a reward signifying sales

in excess of 500,000 copies.

Byrd's second project, No Ordinary Man, kept building on the momentum

the first album created. The first radio single from it called "Lifestyle's

of the Not so Rich and Famous" reached #4, followed by another top five

hit, "The First Step," then with the release of the smash, chart topping

hit "Watermelon Crawl" the second album crossed the half million sales

mark and certified Gold. The realease of the 4th and last single on this

project moved Byrd to the top of both the Billboard Album and Singles

charts. The song was called "The Keeper of the Stars" and it shot to #1

on the singles charts and pushed the album to Double Platinum Status,

which certifies sales of over two million copies. "The Keeper of the Stars"

won Academy of Country Music's "Song of the Year" award in 1995.

His third studio album, Love Lesson, is one of Tracy's favorites. It included

the title track, another top five hit single for Byrd, also included were the

top 15 singles, "Walking to Jerusalem" and "Heaven in My Woman's

Eyes", Byrd's personal favorite. A 4th top 15 single was released called

"4 to 1 in Atlanta" which Byrd performed live on the David Letterman

Show. The "Love Lesson's" album also certified Gold.

Big Love became Byrd's fourth studio album with it's release in the fall

of 1996. It spawned two more top five singles with the release of the

title track and "Don't Take Her She's All I've Got" The video's of both of

these songs reached the top of CMT's Video Chart's and also earned

Byrd his first TNN television special titled Tracy Byrd's Big Love on which

Byrd invited guests Johnny Paycheck, Mark Chesnutt, and Asleep at the

Wheel. The album Big Love became Tracy's fourth consecutive Studio

Album to be certified Gold. Tracy said that this meant more to him than

anything because he knew Fans weren't just listening to his hit songs

on the radio, they were laying down their hard earned money to own a

copy of their own and that was flattering.

The fifth project on MCA was titled, I'm From the Country. The CD also

contained a Beautiful Ballad called "I Wanna Feel That Way Again" Both

Tracy Byrd crossed into the new Millineum with the release of his

album 10 Rounds. It took off on the release of a duet with his longtime

hometown buddy and hero Mark Chesnutt. The song was called "A Good

Way to get on my Bad Side" and was a milestone for Byrd to finally get

to record with his good friend. Then came the release of the party song

of the year, "10 Rounds with Jose Cuervo" which shot to the top of the

Billboard Charts to notch Byrd's third #1 single. He also hit the top 10

with his spanish guitar flared "Just Let Me be in Love."

Next came The Truth About Men, which first released the title track which

was a comedic look at what men are really like. It was a team effort

with Tracy's buddies Blake Shelton, Andy Griggs, and Troy and Eddie

of Montgomery Gentry lending their talents to the song and the video.

This album also released the top five smash "The Drinkin' Bone" which

became a crowd favorite sing along song.

Byrd was then moved to BNA Records, the sister label of RCA, and they

released his second Greatest Hits project, another feat that not many

artists experience, two Greatest Hits projects!!! It debuted in the top five

of the album charts and became Byrd's sixth Gold Album, and sent him

to over six million records sold!!!

Byrd then left the major label and released an album on his own,

appropriatelly titled Different Things. Although this project was not

commercially successful, it garnered Byrd his highest critical acclaim

of his career with Billboard magazine choosing it as one of their Top 10

Country Albums of the Year!!!

Through all of these years, Byrd became a promoter favorite on the road,

performing over 4000 exciting shows across the United States, Canada,

Mexico, Europe, and Australia from 1992 until 2009! He then say's he

needed a break to take care of himself and his most precious thing, his

family, wife Michelle, daugter Evee, and sons Logan and Jared, who

had taken a backseat to his career for years. He did not perform from

2010-2013, but in 2014 he got back to the music with a new band and a

new found sobriety and love of the thing he enjoys so much. Say's Byrd,

"These day's my life has great balance, with my music being a part of it,

not all of it. I can honestly say I have never enjoyed it more!!"

Byrd went back in the studio in June of 2016 and started work on his first

project in 10 years. Recorded completely in Tyler, Texas at Rosewood

Studios, that album is appropriatelly titled, All American Texan, which is

exactly what he is and has always been. This album features eight tracks

written by Byrd, a fact he is very proud of. The album was released in

October of 2016 and has been very well received by his fans and critics

alike.

RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET

COMPANY of 50

Artistic Director: Elena Radchenko

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow

during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s,

when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the

Soviet Union's ballet institutions were exercising their newfound

creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies

dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian

Ballet but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to

accept new developments in the dance from around the world.

The company, then titled the Soviet National Ballet, was

founded by and incorporated graduates from the great Russian

choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm.

The principal dancers of the company came from the upper

ranks of the great ballet companies and academies of Russia,

and the companies of Riga, Kiev and even Warsaw. Today, the

Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over

50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience, many of

whom have been with the company since its inception.

In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko

was selected by Presidential decree to assume the first

permanent artistic directorship of the company. Ms. Radchenko

is the founder of the Russian National Ballet Theatre, and she

has focused the Company on upholding the grand national

tradition of the major Russian ballet works and developing new

talents throughout Russia, with a repertory of virtually all of the

great full works of Petipa: Don Quixote, La Bayadere, The Sleeping

Beauty, Swan Lake, Raymonda, Paquita, Coppelia and La Sylphide,

as well as productions of, among others, The Nutcracker, Sylvia,

and La Fille Mal Gardee.

RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET: GALA PROGRAM continued

The Rose Adagio from Act I of Sleeping Beauty

Choreography by: Marius Petipa

Music by: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

The Sleeping Beauty, a ballet in a prologue and three acts with

choreography by Marius Petipa, had its first production in 1890

at the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg. In the last quarter of the

nineteenth century, ballet on the Imperial Russian stage had sunk

to a very low level artistically. The director of the Imperial Theatres,

Ivan Vsevolojsky, a talented and cultured man, was determined to

raise the artistic level on all counts, and as a first step he approached

the composer Tchaikovsky to supply him with a ballet score. Owing

to the slight success in Moscow of his previous attempts at ballet

music (Swan Lake), it is not wholly surprising to find Tchaikovsky

insistent on having minute and detailed instructions from the

choreographer himself. These he followed slavishly, down to the

exact number of bars required in a given scene or variation. This

seems to have inspired his imagination for the resulting enchanting

score remains possibly his best ballet music.

The "Rose Adagio" of Act I of The Sleeping Beauty is one of ballet’s

most iconic set pieces. The scene takes place at the beginning of the

ballet at Princess Aurora's sixteenth birthday party. Celebrations are

already underway: the atmosphere is festive and Princess Aurora

receives her four royal suitors and their gifts of exquisite roses. The

music and choreography by which Princess Aurora is presented to

her four suitors is instantly recognizable as the Dance of the Little

Swans in Swan Lake or the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Nutcracker.

The key fact about the Rose Adagio is its technical difficulty. After

a sparky allegro entrance, the ballerina has to steady herself for a

series of unsupported balances, taking off from each of her four

princes in turn as Tchaikovsky's music builds up to an expectant

climax around her. Marius Petipa (1818-1910), served as ballet

master of the Imperial Theatre in St. Petersburg from 1862 to 1903,

where he choreographed such classics as Don Quixote, The Sleeping

Beauty, Raymonda and Le Corsaire. His work is considered one of the

greatest achievements of ballet history.

The Quatre

Music by: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Choreography by: Elena Radchenko

While Tchaikovsky is known for his composition of several glorious

pas de deux’s in his prolific ballet works, little is known about

his non-excerpted pas de deux. In this sensational display, Elena

Radchenko has taken two of those pas de deux’s and choreographed

them into a mélange of pure beauty and elegance.

The Ocean and the Pearls from The Little Humpbacked Horse

Music by: Cesare Pugni

Choreography by: Saint- Léon

Arthur Saint-Léon's 1864 ballet Le Petit cheval bossu, ou La Tsar-

Demoiselle ("The Little Humpbacked Horse, or The Tsar Maiden")

was based on Pyotr Yershov's celebrated poem "Konyok-gorbunok,",

meaning "Hunchback Horse" and composed for the Imperial

Ballet (today the Kirov/Mariinsky Ballet). The work premiered on

December 13, 1864 at the Imperial Bolshoi Kamenny Theatre in

St. Petersburg, Russia. The ballet was a massive success, with

its fantastical tableaux set on an enchanted Isle of mermaids,

or another set in a magical Under-water world. The ballet's

final act included a Grand divertissement celebrating the many

peoples of the Russian Empire. Cesare Pugni's music was equally

successful, and was heard at Imperial Balls for decades thereafter.

The resoundingly successful premiere was attended by Emperor

Alexander II. The ballet lived on for many years in the repertory of

the Imperial Ballet and the Kirov Ballet, and of the Bolshoi Theatre

in Moscow in a version by Alexander Gorsky (1901). Marius Petipa

revived the ballet in 1895 as The Tsar Maiden for the Ballerina Pierina

Legnani. Alexander Radunsky choreographed his own version to a

score by Rodion Shchedrin for the Bolshoi Ballet in 1960, a version

which was filmed in 1961 with Maya Plisetskaya as the Tsar Maiden

and Vladimir Vasiliev as Ivanushka. In 2009, Alexei Ratmansky

choreographed a new version for the Mariinsky (Kirov) Ballet, also

using Shschedrin's score.

A version of Saint-Léon's original was filmed in 1989 for Russian

television with graduates from the Vaganova Academy of Russian

Ballet in the lead roles. The film included narrated sections and

illustration from a popular 1964 Russian version of Yershov's book,

Cinderella, Act III: Adagio

Music by: Sergei Prokofiev

Choreography by: Rostislav Zakharov

In Act III, Cinderella remembers the Ball as if it were a beautiful

dream, but finds the remaining glass slipper in one of her pockets.

She quickly hides it as the Stepsisters return, proudly displaying

the oranges the Prince gave them. The Stepmother announces

the arrival of the Prince with his Jester and courtiers in search

of the owner of the glass slipper they bear with them. Each of the

Stepsisters in turn vainly tries to squeeze an oversized foot into the

tiny slipper. When the Prince notices Cinderella sitting shyly by the

fire, he asks her father if she may try it on. As she moves to do so,

the second slipper falls from her pocket. The Prince is overjoyed in

spite of Cinderella's ragged appearance, and asks her to marry him.

Cinderella forgives her Stepmother and sisters for their previous

cruelty to her.

As the Prince returns the glass slipper to the Fairy Godmother, the

kitchen is transformed into a magic glade where Cinderella and her

Prince dance a romantic pas de deux. The guests return to acclaim

their new Princess at her betrothal.

Adagio from Romeo and Juliet

Music by: Sergei Prokofiev

Choreography by: Elena Radchenko

The ballet closely follows Shakespeare’s tragedy. There is an

emphasis on the social conflict between the two feuding families

from disparate social classes who are reconciled over the tombs

of the two lovers. This pas de deux is from the famous scene

where Juliet dreams of Romeo outside on her bedroom balcony.

He appears below in the garden. They declare their eternal love for

one another before the lovers reluctantly part.

Grand Pas de deux from Act III of Don Quixote

Choreography by: Alexander Gorsky

Music by: Leon Minkus

The full-length ballet of Don Quixote concentrates on the love affair

between Kitri and the barber Basil from Volume Two of Cervantes'

masterpiece. The characters of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza

www.harriscenter.net 2018-2019 SEASON PROGRAM GUIDE 47


RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET: GALA PROGRAM continued

merely serve as a thread to link the various scenes of the ballet. This

striking pas de deux performed by Kitri and Basil takes place during

their wedding festivities, and is one of the most famous dances for its

flair and stamina. After a bold, lyrical entrance, the ballerina and her

partner dance a sustained duet followed by an engaging, diamondlike

variation for her and a spectacular solo for him. A joyous climax

is reached with her famous fouettés (quick whipping movement of the

raised leg while turning on the other) and his tours a la seconde (turns

on one leg with the other raised and extended throughout).

Pas de Quatre

Music by: Cesare Pugni

Choreography by: Anton Dolin

"Pas de Quatre" was originally choreographed at the suggestion

of Benjamin Lunley, by Jules Perrot in 1845, with music by Cesare

Pugni at Her Majesty's Theatre in London. In the nineteenth century,

ballerinas were worshiped, even idolized. Their salaries were the

equivalent of what is paid to star athletes today. They developed

enormous egos and had feuds with their rivals. It was a real feat for

Benjamin Lumley to get Marie Taglioni, Carlotta Grisi, Fanny Cerrito,

and Lucile Grahn to dance together, and Perrot to choreograph. Of the

great dancers of that time, only Fanny Elssler did not participate. The

first performance of "Pas de Quatre" sent critics into a frenzy. Perrot

had the difficult task of making each ballerina look her best.

An additional challenge was the order in which they were to appear

with the last solo as the best spot. The manager, Benjamin Lumley,

solved the problem by suggesting that they dance according to age

— the youngest first and the oldest last. Suddenly everyone wanted

to be first, but it was decided that Grahn would lead, followed by Grisi,

then Cerrito and, finally, Taglioni. Only four performances were given

with the original cast. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were in the

audience at the third performance.

In 1941 Anton Dolin re-choreographed the ballet for Ballet Theatre

and in 1949 for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. I saw this ballet with

Alicia Markova in the role of Taglioni, Mia Slavenska as Grisi, Alexandra

Danilova as Cerrito, Nathalie Krassovska (and later Gertrude Tyven) as

Grahn. Many, many dancers have danced this ballet since.

Fokine employed the music of Le Cygne from Saint-Saens's Le

Carnival des Animaux. The dance, evoking the final struggle for the life

of a dying bird, became particularly identified with Pavlova. It remains

one of the most famous solo dances ever created, representing for

many the very essence of ballet dancing.

Selections from Paquita

Choreography: Joseph Mazilier/Marius Petipa

Music: Leon Minkus

Paquita is one of the most celebrated displays of technical fireworks

from the old Imperial Russian Ballet. Marius Petipa made a series of

revisions to the famous French ballet Paquita when he was balletmaster

in St. Petersburg, the most important being in 1881 when he

inserted a trio and Grand Pas to new music by Ludwig Minkus as a

showcase for the considerable talents of his ballerinas at that time.

These gems of Petipa’s choreography have been treasured in Russia

ever since and remain wonderful examples of his genius. Paquita was

originally staged at the Paris Opera in April 1846. The first Paquita was

Carlotta Grisi. A year after its creation it was staged in St. Petersburg,

where Marius Petipa danced the leading role – his first steps on a

stage to which he would devote the rest of his long career in Russia.

As chief ballet-master in St. Petersburg, Petipa revived the ballet in

1881 for his favored ballerina, Yekaterina Vazem, and with the new

music by Ludwig Minkus, he created the dazzling Grand Pas, which

was revived by Pyotr Gusev for the Bolshoi Ballet.

The ballet takes place in Spain during the Peninsular War and tells

of a Gypsy girl, Paquita, who saves the life of Lucien, and officer

in Napoleon’s army, from a plot to murder him. Lucien’s father, a

French general, wants his son to marry Dona Seraphina, daughter

of the Spanish Governor, but the Governor looks at the proposed

alliance with disdain and bribes the Gyspy King Idigo to kill the

young Frenchman. Idigo offers Lucien a glass of drugged wine, but

Paquita, who knew about the plot, changes the glasses. When hired

assassins enter the Gypsy’s hut, Paquita and Lucien escape. Lucien

approaches his father and introduces Paquita during a ball. The

Governor is arrested and Paquita discovers that she is a daughter of

noble parents, and thus she is able to marry Lucien.

Allegro

Choreography: Vitaly Zabelin

Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky’s last symphony, nicknamed “Pathetique,” which in

Russian translates to “passionate” or “emotional,” was composed

between February and August of 1893. Tchaikovsky conducted its

debut in St. Petersburg on October 28, 1893, nine days before his

death (it is said that five days after he conducted his final symphony,

he drank a glass of unboiled water, which was the cause of many

cholera cases in St. Petersburg at the time, although some refute that

it was an accidental death). The choreographer for this work is also a

member of the company, and sets the music to the third movement

from Tchaikovsky’s famous symphony.

Volunteers

A Key Part of the Team

More than 1,500 volunteers help to keep

the Center running smoothly. Last year

alone, volunteers contributed nearly

35,000 hours as gallery docents, ushers

and office assistants, and community

ambassadors—helping patrons to have an

outstanding arts experience. They are a

key part of the Center’s success—it literally

could not operate without their support.

program, visit www.harriscenter.net.
