For its 46th Anniversary Season, the internationally renowned Lar Lubovitch Dance Company will present ANCIENT TALES, a single program of two new dances based on ancient myths – the world premiere of The Black Rose and the premiere of a new production, Artemis in Athens, featuring guest artist Alessandra Ferri. Both works are set to original commissioned scores, and every show will include live music.

The Black Rose, tells a dark tale drawn by Mr. Lubovitch from the primeval folk stories out of which fairy tales eventually arose. This dramatic work for 10 dancers is set to a score by Scott Marshall (composer of Lubovitch’s masterpiece, Men’s Stories).

The second premiere, Artemis in Athens, is a re-conceived production of Artemis, originally created by Lubovitch for American Ballet Theatre and performed at the Met. Based on the Greek myth of the goddess of the hunt, this new production features the legendary ballerina Alessandra Ferri in the title role with the Lubovitch Company dancer Tobin Del Cuore as Aktaion, and 10 top dancers from The Juilliard School as the ensemble.

It is set to a new orchestration of Christopher Theofanidis’ original score, performed live by Le Train Bleu under the direction of Ransom Wilson. At the time of the earlier premiere at the Met, dance critic Jennifer Dunning wrote that Lubovitch has “created a delicate aura of mystery and magic that is unusual on the ballet stage today” (The New York Times).
