Dances Patrelle's 20th Repertory Season will be presented April 16-19, 2009 at The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College. The diverse and exciting program will include a World Premiere as well as a past classic by Francis Patrelle.

2009 marks the 200th Anniversary of the birth of one of America's most treasured literary masters, Edgar Allan Poe, and Dances Patrelle has prepared something special for the occasion. Murder at the Masque: The Casebook of Edgar Allan Poe may be the world's first true mystery ballet. Lord Roderick Usher (danced by Royal Ballet alum Matthew Dibble) has been murdered, everyone at the Masquerade is a suspect, and world famous detective Auguste Dupin is on the case. Featuring characters and setting drawn from Poe's stories and poems, this new ballet will be a spine-tingling entertainment unlike anything you've seen before. Choreographed by Francis Patrelle to a commissioned score by Patrick Soluri (Madame X), based on an original story by Justin Allen (Slaves of the Shinar) with lavish sets by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, opulent costumes by Rita B. Watson and spook-tastic lighting by David Grill.

The company is also reviving fan-favorite Come Rain/Come Shine (featuring songs sung by Judy Garland), a ballet for three couples set inside a boxing ring, with all the emotional uppercuts, ego-jarring jabs, and roundhouse blows to the pride you might expect. Starring American Ballet Theatre's Marcelo Gomes, Maria Riccetto, Isaac Stappas, Christi Boone, Roman Zhurbin and Gemma Bond. Come Rain/Come Shine is Patrelle drama at its very best.
