No Strings Attached

The September HOP will introduce new contemporary works choreographed by Artistic Director Luis Dominguez and Company Dancer Alex Orenstein. No Strings Attached  features live music by harpist and Lexington Ballet alumni, Janna Young. Ms Young performed last season as principal harpist with Ohio Light Orchestra in Clo-Clo and as second harpest with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra and the Louisville Orchestra in performances such as Puccini's Gianni Schicchi and Suor Angelica, and La Bayadere by Ludwig Minkus. She is currently studying and performing at University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.

Bach Fugue

Choreography: Luis Dominguez
Dancers: Lexington Ballet Ensemble and Ballet Level 6 students

Unity, strength, and beauty are the inspiration behind the movement performed by six dancers on a theme that develops, evolves and re-occurs with the fuge. This excuisite Bach piece was chosen by Ms. Young for this event. A fuge is a complex style from the Baroque period that takes a simple tune, or subject, repeats it in voices of varying range, and interweaves it with new melody to create a harmonic counterpoint. It is a challenging peice for the dancers with intricate nonstop motion.

If It's Magic

Choreography: Luis Dominguez
Dancers: Ballet Level 4-6 students

Set to Stevie Wonder's first song released in 1976. This peice connects the attention of the young performers to the ethereal reality of life.

Chairs

Choreography: Luis Dominguez
Dancers: Lexington Ballet Ensemble and Ballet Level 6 students

A Lexington Ballet favorite first performed at the Opera House in 2003. This is a Vaudeville style piece set to Tango de Roxane recorded by Ewan McGregor, Jose Feliciano & Jacek Koman.

Sakura

Choreography: Alex Orenstein
Dancers: Lexington Ballet Ensemble and Ballet Level 4-6 students

Set to the first movement of Sonatine for harp, Op. 30 by Marcel Tournier, this piece takes its inspiration from the fleeting beauty of cherry blossoms that elegantly fall. Dating back more than 1000 years, Hanami, the festival of cherry blossom viewing in Japan, is a time of self-reflection and the wistful realization that nothing lasts forever.

Libertango

Choreography: Alex Orenstein
Dancers: Eliza Leaver, Addison Goan, Anna Keren Kinghorn and Lilly Hardwick

Astor Piazzolla's Libertango, arranged for solo pedal harp by Ekaterina Afanazieva, was originally written in 1974 for an orchestra. The solo pedal harp arrangement when listened to in contrast to the full orchestra, evokes a feeling of power and strength. In an effort to visually represent this feeling of empowerment, Ms Orenstein presents a quartet comprised of four young women that embody independence, strength and confidence.
