ARB's Fall Kick-Off

American Repertory Ballet returns to Rider University's Bart Luedeke Center to present an evening of compelling narrative works on September 19-20 at Bart Luedeke Center Theater at Rider University(2083 Lawrenceville Rd in Lawrenceville, NJ).

ARB's Fall Kick-Off Performance will feature ballets choreographed by former Joffrey Ballet dancers: Philip Jerry's poignant Our Town, a ballet based on Thornton Wilder's timeless play and set to music by Aaron Copland; Mary Barton's frothy and fanciful Fantasy Baroque, set to music by Bach; and Trinette Singleton's dark psychological pas de trois Dreams Interrupted, set to an original score by Pierre Bohemond.

The program will also feature Confetti, choreographed by Joffrey Ballet co-founder and great choreographer of the 20th century Gerald Arpino. Confetti is a virtuosic ballet created in the spirit of the tarantella, set to Gioachino Rossini's Semiramide Overture.

Admission is $20 for adults, $10 for students and seniors. Tickets go on sales Tuesday, September 2, 2014. For more information click here
