Herci Marsden, Artistic Director
Founding Prima Ballerina
On behalf of Ms. Herci Marsden, Artistic Director of the State Ballet of Rhode Island (SBRI), we would like to invite you to our Project Ballet in Education performance of “Tour de Ballet,” an around-the-world ballet experience, held May 11 at 10:00 AM at Rhode Island College.
The show marks the world premiere of the score, “SAFARI,” composed by emerging Rhode Island composer Christy Isles. The six-movement piece will be performed by a live ensemble, and features choreography by SBRI resident choreographer Mia Godbout.
In addition, we will be performing the “Tarantella” from Italy, the “Can-Can” from France, an exciting Celtic ballet from Ireland, “Don Quixote Pas de Deux” from Spain, romantic “Vienna Waltzes,” and the East Slavic “Polovtsian Dances” from Borodin’s Prince Igor, reconstructed to create an around-the-world performance experience.
We are able to offer this performance at a reduced rate for as low as 2 dollars a seat thanks to the generosity of our sponsors: Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, RI PBS, Asia Grille, Cardi’s Furniture, and Stanley Tree Service. Our mission is to create, present, and preserve the art of classical ballet within our community. We are sure that this will be an inspiring, not to mention educational, experience for your students like no other, and we hope to see you at the performance.
Space is limited! Reserve your seats now by calling 401-334-2560 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
