STUTTGART IN COSTA MESA
COSTA MESA, CA -- The Stuttgart Ballet returns to the Orange County Performing Arts Center, March 18-23, with four different dances on tap--Romeo and Juliet, first choreographed in 1969 by the late John Cranko. Costa Mesa will see the young firebrand Friedemann Vogel in the Romeo role and the Spanish beauty Alicia Amatriain opposite him. With Reid Anderson as a guiding spirit, SB will also present three other of its popular works: Cindys Gift, The Seventh Blue and Seventh Symphony.
Cindys Gift was created for the company in 2002 by Douglas Lee, set to John Cage's "Six Melodies for Violin and Keyboard." Seventh Symphony is Uwe Scholz's celebratory work for 24 dancers, set to Beethoven's music. The Seventh Blue by Christian Spuck interpolates music by Gyorgy Kurtag and Schubert's famous Death and the Maiden.
