The Bayou City Ballet Spring Showcase 2024, Carnival of the Animals, features the newly commissioned Jubilee 2024, a re-envisioned staging of choreographer Caleb Mitchell's celebrated work for four dancers. Set to the dizzying final movement of Saints-Saens first Violin Sonata op 75, this performance includes live music performed by violinist Matt Lammers and pianist James Palmer. To contrast to the neoclassical style of Mitchell's work, Artistic Director Alex Pandiscio has staged the rarely performed pas de deux from August Bournonville's "Kermesse en Bruges," a masterwork of the 19th century Danish choreographer. Other more modern works on the program include Dylan Allen's popular Bleeding Heart, and Dianne Maroney-Grigsby's Fly. To conclude the show, students of Bayou City Ballet School perform all together in the playful one-act ballet, Carnival of the Animals, which features dancing lions, chickens, tortoises, swans, jellyfish, and more!
