Ancient Airs and Dances

Choreography by Stoner Winslett
Music by Ottorino Respighi

In honor of Artistic Director Stoner Winslett’s 40th anniversary with Richmond Ballet, Studio One opens with Ancient Airs and Dances, the first piece she choreographed for the professional company. Set to Italian and French lute songs orchestrated by Respighi, four couples gradually shed the masks of custom and form, on a journey through the emotions that bind all of mankind together.
