SundanceX is performing Passagio Serenata in its 4th consecutive year with DWC.
This dance was made to Josef Suk’s rhapsodic work, "Serenade for Strings in E flat Major, Op. 6". It is a plotless, classical dance reflecting the nature of the score, with its lyrical romanticism and wistfulness, and a hint of the real life drama of the composer's love for his teacher's daughter before she became his wife - his teacher being Antonin Dvorak. Dvorak, in fact, encouraged him to write something less melancholic, which was Suk's natural inclination, which resulted in this beautiful composition.
