Alonzo King Lines Ballet

Alonzo King Lines Ballet will perform a stunning series of works set to music by composers including Gabriel Fauré, Edgar Meyer and Zakir Hussain, as well as Azoth, inspired by the element mercury, set to music by venerable jazz musicians including saxophonist Charles Lloyd and pianist/composer Jason Moran.

Lauded as creating ‘the most sophisticated modernism in classical dance’ (Los Angeles Times), choreographer Alonzo King is renowned for imbuing classical ballet with new expressive potential. He has been hailed as a visionary and is the recipient of the 2008 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award. LINES Ballet returns, with dancers that are “handsome, sleek, accomplished, and individual” (The New York Times).

Azoth, a bold new work, brings a light installation by renowned Bay Area artist Jim Campbell. When the program premiered in Lines’ native San Francisco, it was called “absolutely a triumph” (The Bay Area Reporter).

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
