RIOULT Dance New York

with the Naples Philharmonic
Artis—Naples Dance Series

Radu Paponiu, conductor

Bach/Rioult — Celestial Tides
Kernis/Rioult — On Distant Shores
Stravinsky/Rioult — Firebird

Founder and choreographer Pascal Rioult brings a stunning intensity to the modern dance performances of RIOULT Dance New York. This season, the company will perform three works in an evening with the Naples Philharmonic under the baton of Radu Paponiu.

The first work, Celestial Tides, is a stunning movement-driven display, propelled by the joy and emotion behind the art of dance. The second is On Distant Shores set to Aaron Kernis’ composition Air, a poetic fantasy based on Helen of Troy’s imagined relationships with heroes of the Trojan War. Finally, Firebird—a piece that has been described by The New York Times as “a compelling reinvention, even rejection, of the exotic beauties of Stravinsky’s famous ballet score.”

Arrive early to enjoy the Hayes Hall Galleries and light fare at the cafe. The doors to Hayes Hall open 60 minutes prior to this performance.
