Description:

A world premiere by Artistic Director Paul Vasterling, Lucy Negro Redux explores the mysterious love life of literary great William Shakespeare through the perspective of the illustrious “Dark Lady” for whom many of his famed sonnets were written. Based on the book by Nashville poet Caroline Randall Williams, the contemporary ballet explores themes of love, otherness, equality and beauty as the narrator embarks on a journey to discover her own power and worth. Featuring an original score by GRAMMY Award-winning artist and MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Rhiannon Giddens with spoken word performed by Williams, Lucy is an imaginative drama brimming with wit and relevancy.

During this series, Mitchell Korn and Nashville Ballet artistic staff members will examine the creation process behind this intriguing world premiere.


Participants will:
  • Learn what it takes to create a brand-new ballet
  • Examine the literary influences that inspired this work
  • Explore the original score composed by Rhiannon Giddens
  • Get a sneak peek into the rehearsal process
  • Engage with artistic staff members and guests who have made this production possible

  • This lecture series will take place before Attitude: Lucy Negro Redux premieres at TPAC’s Polk Theater February 8-10, 2019. Click here to learn more about the performance.
