The evening will include performances of Mozart’s Requiem, with critically acclaimed choreographer Sarah Rothrock-Rickel; La Bayadere, performed by the Graduate students at NYSB; Alice in Wonderland, appealing to audience members both young and old; Paquita, considered by many to be one of the cornerstones of the traditional classical ballet repertory; The Red Death, Zachary Frazee’s interpretation of Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “The Red Death” is at times eerie and enchanting, combining contemporary ballet and character acting into a performance; and Carmina Burana, entices the audience with its powerful and worldly magnetism.
