A lovely chamber-sized company with adventurous choreographic choices, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet returns to Wolf Trap this week. My story on the program appears in the Aspen Business Journal here.
"Located just outside of Washington, D.C., Wolf Trap is known far and wide for its prestigious dance series, including performances by top companies from the Kirov, which made its first U.S. appearance after a 22-year absence in 1986 at the height of Cold War. Others regularly on the Filene Center boards have been Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Pennsylvania Ballet, Trey McIntyre Project and Ronald K. Brown/Evidence. This summer ASFB returns to the popular outdoor theater in the woods two years after its Wolf Trap premiere. That evening in 2009, Barbara Parker, Wolf Trap’s director of operations and artistic initiatives, sat in the rear orchestra with ASFB directors Tom Mossbrucker and Jean-Philippe Malaty."
