The program opens with San Francisco choreographer Val Caniparoli’s contemporary work, Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino, set to the music of Vivaldi.
Join us for an unforgettable performance as we again collaborate with the energetic, captivating, and self-proclaimed “little orchestra,” Pink Martini. Exciting new choreography accompany the band’s eclectic mix of world jazz, pop and classical music. You may find yourself in a conga line by the end of the show!
To tantalize your dance palate, we open with San Francisco choreogapher Val Caniparoli’s Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (Everything But the Kitchen Sink), celebrating “invention, relationships and sophisticated wit with wry gestures, beautiful formations and a warm humanity,” (Allan Ulrich, San Francisco Chronicle).
“This ballet [Pink Martini] just seemed to fly by, with enthusiastic audience members eating it up. The show left us wanting more.”
