A dance of darkness through classical masterpieces is reimagined through the mind of rock maestro, Zaza. This symphonic rock ballet mixes dark, powerful arrangements of classical masterpieces with the fury of a rock concert. Choreographer Antonio Morillo will bring visualization and his passionate choreography to showcase Verb Ballets at its dramatic finest. Together, these artists will create an unforgettable experience to bring forth the spirit of the Halloween season into your home. Carnival Macabre will conjure up the supernatural, beginning with a carnival of souls to take you on a journey. The royal court is brought to order in Prokofiev’s, Dance of the Knights. The dark and foreboding section from Romeo and Juliet and new characters will embody the texture of dramatic and dissonant harmonies. Verb Ballets re-stages a rendition of the iconic solo, Dying Swan, the classical work enters a new level of imagination with Zaza’s score.
