Loyola at a Glance

Loyola Ballet performance includes pirate story and holiday delights

November 19, 2010

The Loyola Ballet will present an evening of classical, character and contemporary dance joined by guest Komenka Ethnic Dance Ensemble on Saturday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 21, at 2 p.m., in Roussel Performance Hall, located in the Communications/Music Complex, on the Loyola University New Orleans main campus.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $8 for all students, seniors, children and Loyola faculty and staff, and are available online at www.montage.loyno.edu or by calling 504-865-2074. Tickets will also be available at the door 30 minutes prior to the performance.

The performance will feature excerpts from the swashbuckling pirate tale “Le Corsaire,” choreographed by the great 19th-century ballet master and choreographer Marius Petipa as well as “French Canadian Suite,” performed by Komenka Ethnic Dance Ensemble and inspired by Loyola’s College of Music and Fine Arts Montage Series Jesuit theme. They will also perform to Leroy Anderson’s classic American holiday song, “Sleigh Ride.”

Guest performers will include Loyola alumni Colleen Murphy, performing a contemporary work choreographed by Gilbert Rome, and Kenneth Bryan, performing one of his own choreographed works, “Nature Boy.”
