10th Annual Dance for the World Community

  • Jose Mateo's Ballet Theatre 1151 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

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.
