The José Mateo Ballet Theatre Company’s final concert of the season, “New Eruptions,” opened on April 25 and will continue until May 11, 2014, at the Sanctuary Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
According to Karen Campbell (The Boston Globe), “New Eruptions” offers two world premieres, paired on a program with the 2012 “Taking Turns” [see photo above by Gary Sloan], set to the music of Philip Glass. One premiere is set to Busoni’s adaptation of Bach’s Piano Concerto in D Minor. The other features “a playfully jazzy interpretation” of Mozart’s Piano Sonata in C Major by American composer-pianist Uri Caine.
Cuban-born José Mateo is founder and artistic director of the José Mateo Ballet Theatre, one of America’s leading producers of new ballets, and the area’s most innovative school for quality ballet training. For over 25 years José Mateo Ballet Theatre’s highly acclaimed Company has presented repertory work representing Mateo’s artistic achievement in choreography. The School offers an innovative model for a high-quality academy with a humanistic approach to ballet training that fosters diversity and inclusion.
