Additional Ballets

Zalman Raffael’s Book of Contradictions with music by Franz Liszt.
Created on Franz Liszt’s “Piano Concerto No.2 in A major S.125,” this ballet was entitled “book of contradictions” because the music evokes sounds of resistance and surrender. “Life is filled with contradictions, yet our higher selves still strive to find the good in the bad and the beautiful in the ugly.” – Zalman Raffael

Robert Weiss’ Endymion’s Sleep with music by J. Mark Scearce.
When he choreographed Endymion’s Sleep, Weiss was inspired by Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking, her acclaimed memoir about coping with death. “Memory preserves in our hearts the remembrances of loved ones taken away from this world too young—immortally beautiful in their youth, now sleeping Endymion’s sleep.” – Robert Weiss
