Virginia National Ballet presents “Life in the Fast Lane”: three riveting contemporary ballets to iconic musical selections that will have you on the edge of your seats! First on the program is Ravel’s “Bolero”, followed by “Bohemian Rhapsody”, ending with Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”, with a twist. VNB’s award winning Artistic Director Rafik Hegab has choreographed all three works, which will be danced with athleticism and aplomb by VNB’s group of international professional dancers. “Bolero” is Ravel’s most famous composition, with a repeated melody that builds with different orchestration at each phrase, ending in a powerful climax. “Bohemian Rhapsody” features many of Queen’s greatest hits and some deep tracks. Prepared to be rocked! And lastly, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons will take you on a journey with its powerful rhythms and famous musical phrases, with some selections rewritten by contemporary composer Max Richter. VNB is the 2022 Winner of The Best of Prince William in 3 categories: Best Performing Arts Company, Best Choreographer, and Best Dance School.
