Honoring the work of Akron composer Pat Pace and Ohio Ballet Founder Heinz Poll, Tuesday Musical presents Verb Ballets and The Chamber Music Society of Ohio. Verb Ballets will perform Poll’s Rococo Variations in original costumes; its first staging since Ohio Ballet’s closing. Also premiering is Shéhérazade Retold; a re-conceived tale of women as warriors, choreographed by Loretta Simon. Set to Pat Pace’s composition Excursions, dancer Kate Webb will present a new full ensemble ballet inspired by celestial life cycles.
Enjoy our intimate “Concert Conversation” with creators of this special evening George Pope and Dr. Carlson at 6:30 p.m. in EJ’s Flying Balcony. Easily accessed by elevator, the Flying Balcony offers comfortable seating and a cash bar.
