A review of Ballet Black from the Guardian:

There are so many shining ways in which Ballet Black have made themselves a model of diversity. It’s not just their policy of giving a home to black and Asian dancers, nor the following they’ve built over the last 16 years – a vivid rebuttal to the idea that ballet appeals only to a white, middle-aged, middle-class audience. Equally significant is the joyously unpredictable repertory they dance, commissioned not only from young classical choreographers but modern dance-makers experimenting with ballet.

American Ballet Theatre's Marcelo Gomes, considered one of today's premiere male dancers, will guest star in this weekend's evening performances of Sir Frederick Ashton's "The Two Pigeons" partnering Sarasota Ballet principal Victoria Hulland. (The company's Ricardo Rhodes and Ryoko Sadoshima will perform the Saturday matinee.) The ballet is half of a "Tribute to Ashton" double bill that also includes "Scenes de Ballet," the 24th work by the British choreographer added to the repertoire since Webb's arrival and one which has never before been performed by an American company.

Some say that the only force in this world more powerful than death is love. The story of Giselle and her tragic love epitomizes this belief in The Washington Ballet’s impressive new staging.
