Attitude: A Two-Part Virtual Series Preview
Nashville Ballet is bringing back performances in early March this year. From March 5th through March 7th and April 2ndthrough April 4th they will be performing a virtual presentation of their new Attitude series. Attitude Part I will be virtually performed from March 5th through March 7th, and Attitude part II will be performed April 2nd through April 4th.
Attitude Part I will feature two popular works : Johnny Cash’s Under the Lights, and Jennifer Archibald’s Superstitions. Paige Atwell claims that Under the lights “gives viewers a unique glimpse into the life and legacy of the infamous ‘Man in Black’”. She goes onto explain the performance also has some collaborations with other famous Cash songs such as Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line, and God’s Gonna cut you down. The music will be recorded Sugar + The Hi-Lows with a rockabilly twist. Along with the Cash performance, Part I will be joined with Superstitions with choreography by Jennifer Archibald. Paige claims that Archibald is, “Known for her unique style of movement that blends the precision and technicality of classical ballet with contemporary dance styles like hip-hop.” This portion will be accompanied with a score from local musician Cristina Spinei.
Attitude II is a much more classical ballet. It features Seasons, choreographed by Director Paul Vasterling, and is performed with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons recomposed by Max Richter. The Nashville Ballet hopes for this portion to be a, “fresh and uplifting view on the elements of classical ballet.”
The Nashville Ballet ensures that all safety measures are taking place to make sure that the creating of these performances are done so in the safest way possible.
