International Ballet Star Jose Carreno To guest with New Jersey Ballet at Morristown's Community Theatre

At Mayo Center for the Performing Arts, Morristown
May 17 at 8PM

New Jersey Ballet will bring down the curtain on its 2007-08 Saturday night series at The Community Theatre, Morristown, with a program featuring a guest appearance by International Star Jose Carreno.

Also on the program, Swan Lake Act II, is one of the greatest works in the classical repertory, and The Life and Death of Spartacus, the tale of the doomed slave uprising against the mighty Roman Empire, re-created by Konstantin Dournev.

Guest Star Jose Carreno, Cuban-born principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre, will perform the Black Swan pas de deux with NJB principal Saule Rachmedova. Mr. Carreno is known for his performances of Black Swan, and the much-in-demand dancer has performed this pas de deux all over the world. Excerpted from the third act of Swan Lake, in Black Swan, Prince Siegfried is duped into believing an evil sorcerer's daughter is really his true love, the Swan Queen.

Earlier, in Act II, Siegfried's first encounter with the Swan Queen sets the story in motion. The May 17 program will feature the Company premiere of Swan Lake, Act II, with New Jersey Ballet principals Mari Sugawa dancing the role of the Swan Queen (the White Swan) and Vladimir Roje as Prince Siegfried.

Completing the program, New Jersey Ballet will present the world premiere of The Life and Death of Spartacus, a re-creation by Konstantin Dournev. Set to Aram Khachaturian's dramatic score. Spartacus, a Thracian gladiator-slave, escapes and leads an army of slaves against the mighty Roman Empire.

New Jersey Ballet at The Community Theatre, 100 South Street, Morristown. Saturday, May 17 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets $40, $30, $20. Call 973-539-8008 or log on to mayoarts.org.

New Jersey Ballet's Saturday Night Series at The Community Theatre is sponsored in part by the F. M. Kirby Foundation. For information on New Jersey Ballet and season schedule, call 973-597-9600 or visit www.njballet.org.
