Sarasota Weekend Events of April 29, 2016

Posted by See Sarasota Live on

Plenty of outdoor activities this weekend. There are rowing championships, fun runs for charity and the grande parade. But, if you are more into some indoor activities, you can always visit the Ballet and see Wheeldon and Ashton, a comic ballet set in France. Read more on our featured events for this weekend.

Sarasota Ballet - Wheeldon & Ashton

April 28, Sarasota Ballet - Wheeldon & Ashton, Sarasota

Wheeldon & Ashton closes our 25th Anniversary Season on 29 - 30 April 2016 at the Sarasota Opera House. Tony-award winning choreographer Wheeldon created The American to Dvořák’s string quartet, and the tranquility and open sky of America’s Great Plains inspired composer and choreographer alike. Set to Sir Rodney Bennett’s rousing jazz score, Ashton’s Jazz Calendar is 60’s era interpretation of the nursery rhyme “Monday’s Child.” Ashton’s A Wedding Bouquet, with text by Gertrude Stein and music by Gerald Tyrwhitt/Lord Berners, is a bittersweet vignette of a turn-of-the-century provincial wedding in France where, comically, everything seems to go wrong.
