A review of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet
by Ray Rinaldi in The Denver Post.
The evening ends with the ASF-commissioned "Over Glow," which makes warm and welcome turns toward traditional positions before veering off into something much more modern. In choreographer Jorma Elo's 2011 narrative-driven piece, wrists flick and bodies shake. Still, it is a graceful statement, set to Mendelssohn and Beethoven.
This is a terrific season for dance along the Front Range. Local companies are staging ambitious productions, and touring troupes are exposing audiences here to a larger world of ideas. But ASF's weekend is likely to be the highlight of it all. They're thrilling, really, rewarding to just about every taste in dance. This particular program is one to see.
