Apr 07, 2011 08:39PM ● Published by Anonymous

 

Ballet Theatre of Maryland (BTM), Maryland’s premier professional ballet company, culminates its 33rd season with the world premiere of Star Spangled Sketches. The centerpiece of the program is a new historical work – Frontier: 1812, set to David Arkenstone’s Emmy-award winning score for the History Channel.  Inspired by the letters and memoirs of Dolley Madison and other significant women of the period, the work will depict the major events of the 1812 war that forged young America into a nation.  “Dolley and James Madison provide the threads that tie all of the sketches together,” says Cuatto, “creating a tapestry of the events that turned the tide of war in favor of America beginning with the causes and  declaration of war through the Burning of Washington to the Battle of Fort McHenry and the creation of the Star Spangled Banner.”

The remainder of the program includes sketches that are inspired by the evolution of American music culture.  A pre-performance history lecture will accompany the performance which will be held on April 15th & 16th at 7pm, and April 17 @ 2pm at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis.  Join the BTM dancers for the season finale party immediately following the 2pm performance on Sunday, April 17th, 2011.  All ticket prices include the service charge and are $45 adult, $36 senior, $25 student & $19 children.

For tickets, call Maryland Hall’s box office at 410-280-5640 or go on-line www.mdhallarts.org.  For information about the performances, group rates and other specials, contact the BTM office 410.224.5644 or go online www.ballet maryland.org
