Dance Theatre of Harlem

The legendary and newly revitalized classical and contemporary ballet company open Festival 2013. Led by founding member and former principal dancer Virginia Johnson, the company  presents a range of classic and new work that spans several eras of dance in America, including George Balanchine’s 1957 masterwork Agon, which features an iconic pas de deux first performed by then-New York City Ballet dancer and subsequent Dance Theatre of Harlem founder Arthur Mitchell and ballerina Diana Adams. Also on the program, The Lark Ascending (1972) is one of Alvin Ailey’s most balletic works, set to an eponymous score by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams created for violin and orchestra in 1920. Dance Theatre of Harlem will be the first company to perform the work en pointe. Far But Close (2012) is a modern-day ballet by Canadian choreographer John Alleyne, with text by award-winning actor, singer, and writer Daniel Beaty and music by composer and violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain.
