Bristol Ballet 75th Anniversary
Join us for a celebratory reception and performance to commemorate Bristol Ballet’s historic 75th Anniversary Season. Enjoy a reception with cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres in Paramount Bristol’s lobby before a Past, Present, Future themed performance featuring the performing company of Bristol Ballet. To celebrate our past, the production will begin with a revival of Mountain Ballad (premiered in the 1960s), a seminal work by Bristol Ballet’s founder, Constance Hardinge. To highlight the present, the production will continue with excerpts from Unbroken Circle, a work by Artistic Director Emeritus Michele Plescia to music from the 1927 Bristol Sessions. To look forward to the future, two pieces by current co-Artistic Directors, Moira Frazier Ostrander and Amanda Hairston, will finish the show. These pieces will be to musical selections from local music sensation Amythyst Kiah and Appalachian favorite Dolly Parton.
