Brandywine Ballet has earned licensing and approval
from the George Balanchine Trust in New York to perform the company debut of
Balanchine’s Valse-Fantaisie on Friday,
June 4, 2010, 7:30 pm at Longwood Gardens. Also on the program, a new, original
work by choreographer Nancy Page set to the music of Samuel Barber as part of
Chester County’s 2010 Samuel Barber Festival. Describing Balanchine’s Valse-Fantaisie, Paul Kolnik of The New
York Times wrote “with its dancers who never stop
moving and who constantly run or leap in and out with great swiftness, Valse-Fantaisie seems suddenly to
distill the essence of Balanchine's style: speed and momentum.” Earning George Balanchine
Trust licensing requires a
Trust-approved repetiteur to stage the work
and see it through to the premiere. The Trust has assigned Jessica Gattinella,
formerly of Pennsylvania Ballet to act as the company’s repetiteur. Valse-Fantaisie represents the fourth George Balanchine ballet that
Brandywine Ballet has had the distinct honor of performing.

 

Brandywine
