Description:

Highlighting innovation and artistry, this season’s Modern Masters showcases choreographers that have challenged the bounds of the art form through big ideas and intriguing collaborations. The Ben Folds Project: Concerto makes its triumphant homecoming after Nashville Ballet’s critically acclaimed Kennedy Center debut in 2017. George Balanchine’s Duo Concertant delivers a rare look at the breadth of the father of American ballet’s magnificent repertory, while The Lottery keeps audiences and dancers both on edge with the promise of a thrilling climax—the ballet’s final soloist will be selected by a real lottery live on stage. Inspired by the beauty of Eastern rituals, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Bloom rounds out the program.


Participants will:
  • Learn the significance and history of each of the ballets featured on the program
  • 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 Modern Masters with Ben Folds is performed at TPAC’s Jackson Hall April 26-28, 2019. Click here to learn more about the performance.
