Delibes Suite

“Using the music of French composer Léo Delibes, which exemplifies ballet music in the 19th century, I created a classical pas de deux—an entrée, an adagio, a variation for each dancer, and a coda. I’ve slipped in an extra touch of tender irony into the choreography of episodes of valor that are traditional fixtures in dance galas.”
