Closing the Season, Arts Ballet Theatre presents its traditional Spring Gala, featuring Shostakovich Suites and Pentimento. Shostakovich Suites is an exhilarating choreographic piece by Vladimir Issaev, inspired by the music of this Russian composer who was a revolutionary in contemporary composition while suffering the brutal despotism toward talented artists during Stalin's era. Pentimento, created by choreographer Vicente Nebrada, includes excerpts from Johann Sebastian Bach's Four Suites for Orchestra. The ballet is a bold, abstract work that is based on the art form of painting called pentimento. The artist changes his or her mind about the composition of his painting during the process, and then changes it. This ballet applies the same approach to dance: the concept for the dances and costumes change throughout the performance.
