The Sarasota Ballet Program Six, Portraits of Expression. Featuring Balanchine’s Emeralds and Who Cares?, and MacMillan’s Las Hermanas.

Event Details

Portraits of Expression | April 5 – 6, 2024
Sarasota Opera House

Program Six opens with George Balanchine’s Emeralds, the opening ballet in the choreographer’s renowned three-act ballet Jewels, the ballet whispers French perfume with its graceful clouds of tulle in Romantic-length tutus. Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s tense psychological drama Las Hermanas* takes a 180-degree turn from the splendor of the previous work. Profoundly musical, structurally complex, yet exquisitely refined, the ballet is based on Federico García Lorca’s, The House of Bernarda Alba. Las Hermanas is a remarkable dramatic ballet about sensuality under harsh repression as well as the emotional and violent consequences that follow. What better combination to bring audiences back from the weight of Las Hermanas than the brilliance of George Balanchine and George Gershwin? Closing Program Six, Who Cares? brings audiences through a wonderful series of solos, duets, quartets, and ensemble pieces all set to remarkable jazzy classics of Gershwin.

Approximately 2 hours with two 20-minute intermissions

$35 – $125
