Ballets scheduled through July

The second program of the season (to be performed February 14-17 and 20-25) at the Acropole Theater is a triple bill. MacMillan’s «Solitaire,» «L’apres-midi d’un faune» (choreography by Yiannis Mandafounis) and «Les Sylphides» (choreography by Constantinos Rigos). A third program in April and May focuses on «American Dream,» three one-act shows depicting the US as imagined by Greek children translated into movement by leading Greek choreographers including Zoe Dimitriou, Constantinos Rigos and Fotis Nikolaou to music by Malcolm Arnold. Dance workshops scheduled for early July will bring choreographers from all over the world to speak about their approaches to dance, with dancers of the Greek National Ballet and others. «I think we should make a habit of them. People like to know how (the process) happens, and it’s different with every choreographer,» explained Seymour. Audiences will have an opportunity to see this wonderful artist herself in the final program of the season, «An Evening with Lynn Seymour» on July 8.
