Classical Pick of the Week: Put on your Dancing Shoes
LA Times blog Culture Monster takes a sneak peak at a new production featuring the Bolshoi and OCPAC. Titled "Reflections", you can see it in Costa Mesa from January 20th-23rd, or in Moscow January 27th-30th.
The Los Angeles based troupe Diavolo was recently profiled by the New York TImes, and will premiere a new work by John Adams NEXT Thursday at the Bowl. This Thursday, you can check out Leonard Bernstein's opera, Candide.
This weekend, the Robin Cox Ensemble will perform Hourglass, which is an hour-long event filled with dance improvisation. Dance improviser Stephanie Nugent will offer some pointers half an hour before the concert, if you're the nervous type. If you don't want to join in on all the fun, you can still attend the show and watch. You can dance (or watch) on Saturday at 8 PM at the Miles Memorial Playhouse in Santa Monica, or at 7 PM at the new dance venue ARC in Pasadena.
