Search and reunion

The final a part of this system was occupied by Symphony for a brand new world on the sheet music of the identical identify by Antonin Dvorak and a premiere by Emanuel Abruzzo for 9 dancers; It was a really fascinating work, which went from the purely summary, in a line just like the nice choreographer George Balanchine, to the extra narrative: a person in search of a lady he loses and finds once more.

This final couple was fashioned by Federico Fernández and Ayelén Sánchez, a soloist dancer on the Teatro Colón and who made a phenomenal, refined and expressive efficiency right here. A single objection is the considerably extended size of the work and the problem of sustaining the fourth and final motion of the symphony, of a heroic character, with a scenic and choreographic energy commensurate with that sound magnitude.
