BALLET HAWAII PERFORMANCE SURE TO COOL DOWN A HOT SUMMER WITH GERSHWIN AND TCHAIKOVSKY

Ballet Hawaii announces its production of Cool Ballet for a Hot Summer: A Medley of American Dance featuring several beautiful ballets.

 

The performance includes highlights from “By George!” –  a tribute to George Gershwin and “Serenade” set to the music of Tchaikovsky. Two shows are scheduled for Blaisdell Concert Hall on August 3 and 4.

 

“By George!” is a witty, whimsical view of a Broadway-style musical, complete with comical misunderstandings and flirtations,” said John Parkinson, Ballet Hawaii Executive Director. “Choreographer Tom Pazik injects the ballet with an ingenious sense of humor. Featuring George Gershwin’s many hits, it recalls a simpler time when larger-than-life musical productions were the order of the day. Showcasing the incredible talent of professional artists alongside our students wouldn’t be possible without the support of such sponsors as Starwood Hotels & Resorts Waikiki, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser and many others.”

 

Serenade is a classic ballet set in four parts and a milestone in the history of dance. The first original ballet choreographed by George Balanchine, the work is a signature of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Originating as a lesson in stage technique, Balanchine worked unexpected rehearsal events into the choreography, improvising and creating from each unique experience. Pam Taylor Tongg, Artistic Director for Ballet Hawaii, added “The only story is the music’s story – a serenade of dance, if you like, in the light of the moon. His work perfectly captures the pure simplicity of dancers in motion to a beautiful piece of music.”
