Featuring the Company Premiere of Antony Tudor’s The Leaves are Fading, the Company Premiere of George Balanchine’s Bugaku and Sir Frederick Ashton’s Marguerite and Armand. Performed with Live Music. Originally choreographed in 1975 on American Ballet Theatre, The Leaves are Fading is a romantic and sweeping ballet and one of Tudor’s purest dance works. In Judith Chazin-Bennahum’s book The Ballets of Antony Tudor, she describes the work as a “rhapsodic expression of couples in love” and a ballet that “re-established Tudor’s pre-eminent position as a great choreographer at American Ballet Theatre.” Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times exclaimed that “The Leaves Are Fading becomes a special elegy, an autumnal remembrance of multiple facets of young love when it is dewy but not intoxicated.” George Balanchine’s Tarantella is a nimble virtuosic showcase, and celebrates Principal Dancer Logan Learned 10 years with The Sarasota Ballet.
