Bartók - The Miraculous Mandarin Suite

Tchaikovsky - Violin Suite from Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake

Ravel - La Valse


Ward Stare, conductor

Rochester City Ballet, David Palmer, artistic director

David Halen, violin

Beautifully poised, deliciously poignant, Tchaikovsky’s ballet music never fails to touch the heart. St. Louis Symphony Concertmaster David Halen shines as soloist in a suite of beloved selections from Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty, both unquestioned "Top 40" classical greatest hits. The evening begins with a special performance from RCB. To round things out, “not your average waltz”: Ravel’s fiery showstopper is a hair-raising whirlwind that evokes old-world elegance teetering on the brink of depravity.

Please note that this is not a dance performance of Swan Lake or Sleeping Beauty. Rochester City Ballet will be featured on Dvorak's Slavonic Dances.
