Allegro Brillante by George Balanchine is a light and effervescent sixteen minutes full of sparkling swiftness and precise execution. A quick burst of classical ballet, this celebrated work captivates audiences from start to finish.
Former Richmond Ballet dancer Tom Mattingly returns to Richmond to create his second world premiere on the company, a stunning visual display inspired by Virginia’s natural beauty.
