A review of Sarasota Ballet by Mary Cargill for danceviewtimes.


Wheeldon's ballet is an uneasy amalgam of songs by Chopin and Kurt Weill, which, though it showed off the Sarasota dancers, was neither tantalizing nor brief. The choreography for the Chopin songs looked liked an exaggeration of Jerome Robbins, replete with overly complicated lifts -- the poor girls barely had a chance to stand, much less dance.  The dancers though, made it look as fresh and engaging as possible, underplaying the whisky and dancing with a straightforward honesty.  Ricardo Rhodes was absolutely winning as the flirtatious man abandoned by four women and Samantha Benoit and Ivan Duarte had a youthful charm in their pas de deux.
