Ballet San Jose: Popular Music, Transcendent Dancing

This Ballet San Jose program explores the inspiration two centuries of popular music has
had on modern and contemporary choreographers. Igal Perry plumbs the monumental lyricism of the adagio from one of Beethoven's most enduringly popular piano sonatas (the 'Hammerklavier'), while Dwight Rhoden mines the richly nuanced songs of Nat King Cole. The late Venezuelan dance-maker Vicente Nebrada's Nuestros Valses ('Our Waltzes') is a playfully sublime
homage to the quintessential social dance, and Paul Taylor's Piazzolla Caldera highlights the incendiary passions and complexities of tango. Times and prices vary. For more information, go to balletsj.org.
