Death and Delight
"Death and Delight" brings together exceptional live music with bold dancing in it’s retelling of two of Shakespeare’s classic stories. A double bill of Prokofiev’s suite from "Romeo and Juliet" and "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," set to Mendelssohn’s score, create an unforgettable evening of dance theater.
BodyVox’s original brand of dance will capture the timeless power of Shakespeare’s beloved story of tragedy and love with "Romeo and Juliet." While "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" will have us all dancing in the garden of delight, as four lovers are led on a merry chase through the woods by spirited fairies, misguided romance, and gender-bending role playing. A perfectly balanced evening of Shakespeare’s tragedy and comedy, gorgeous dance, beautiful music and BodyVox. Perfect!
Presented with live music by acclaimed pianists and America’s most innovative dance company, Death and Delight will be a show audiences will talk about for years to come.
