Commonwealth Ballet presents “A Small Thing Lost” March 12 & 13. Brought to you in part by the Weston Cultural Council

The Weston Cultural Council is proud to support the Commonwealth Ballet performing, A Small Thing, Lost.  This one-of-a-kind performance delivers premier works and collaborations that offer a new level of performance, choreography, and musical vision to the stage.   A Small Thing, Lost is a repertory concert, a performance of short dance works that capture moments of hope, joy, love and loss.  The performances will be at the Casey Theatre of Regis College in Weston, MA on Saturday March 12th at 7:30PM and Sunday March 13th at 2PM.

Some highlights of the concert are:

v     Adéchiké Torbert, So You Think You Can Dance Top 4 finalist, choreographs a contemporary work to the music of Kanye West and Drehz.  This dynamic and high energy piece delivers a joyous experience for the audience.

v     CBC’s Artistic Director Chip Morris collaborates with Jennifer Moss conductor of the award-winning Acton-Boxborough Madrigal Singers to present a journey from flirtatious youth to final years featuring the music of contemporary composers David Lang, Eric Whitacre and John Tavener.  The depth and beauty of the 23 Madrigal voices will remain with you long after the performance.

v     Former Boston Ballet soloist Denise Pons creates a contemporary ballet work to a premier Martin Case original composition.  The performances will include instrumental accompaniment by the composer.

v     A recovered treasure of classical ballet repertory, La Vivandière Pas de Six, delivers a lost work back to the stage.
