About 100 guests witnessed tonight's premiere of "The Poet's Love," an exquisite collaboration between the Maine State Ballet and the Florestan Recital Project co-directors Aaron Engebreth, baritone, and Alison d'Amato, pianist. The magical ballet depicts a tragic tale of love and loss, set to Robert Schumann's classic song cycle "Dichterliebe," which translates from the German as "The Poet's Love." Pictured above are the fabulous dancers who performed the original choreography. In the back row, from left, they are Nathaniel Dombek, Frederick Bernier, Glenn Davis and Michael Holden. In the front, are Elizabeth Dragoni, Janet Davis and Kate Hamilton.
Tonight's special fundraiser for the Maine State Ballet began with a cocktail reception and ended with a conversation with the artists. The performance took place in Falmouth at Maine State Ballet's intimate theater, which was repainted a lovely burgundy and hung with glittering chandeliers for the occasion.
The show continues tomorrow night, Aug. 5, Saturday, Aug. 6 and next weekend, Aug. 12 &13. All shows take place at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and children.
Be sure to check out the Aug. 7 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram, where I'll have more details and photos from the party.
Until then, I hope to see you out and about.Tweet
