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. Piano sonatas
by current German composer Götz Östlind serve as the musical backdrop for this contemporary take
on classical themes.
