|An Evening with the Stars 2010|
Indianapolis City Ballet’s An Evening with the Stars danced its way onto the stage at The Murat Theatre this weekend. Principal dancers from around the globe, China, Japan, Australia, Russia, Mexico, Brazil and the United States were brought together for one night, to share their talent and passion of ballet.
Contemporary to traditional and signature pieces were showcased, including a return of last year’s most popular dancer, Miguel Quinones. Quinones’ Caught once again received a well-deserved standing ovation. The David Parsons-choreographed piece delighted the audience with its special lighting giving the appearance of the dancer flying without wires.
Other dancers receiving a large portion of the accolades were Daniil Simkin in Les Bourgois, music by Jacques Brel, in Act II, and Ivan Vasiliev. Compared to famous ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, Vasiliev performed two numbers, Flames of Paris and Don Quixote Pas de Deux, both with Natalia Osipova.Elizabeth J.
