About Summer Premieres
Audiences have come to expect the unexpected from ACB’s original ballets. This August, ACB Artistic Director Lincoln Jones premieres two ballets which are as different as night and day.
"Candide Overture"celebrates Leonard Bernstein's centennial with a tribute to his sunny, ebullient, rhythmic dance music.
"Transfigured Night" explores the haunting yet radiant inward world of two lovers as the woman confesses a secret. The music, written by Arnold Schoenberg before he developed his twelve-tone system, reveals a young composer of the deepest feeling and stunning melodic and harmonic gifts.
Following the performance, stay for a reception with ACB artists overlooking the skyline of DTLA.
