Details

What: Sacramento Ballet presenting “Modern Masters”

When: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 19

Where: Vanderhoef Studio Theatre, Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis

Tickets: $40; http://www.mondaiarts.org or (530) 754-2787

The Sacramento Ballet visits the Mondavi Center’s Vanderhoef Studio Theatre on Thursday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m. with “Modern Masters,” the company’s annual showcase of newly created works by professional choreographers.

The program will feature a reprise performance of Brian Reeder’s “Market Crash,” which premiered at the Mondavi Center last year. Inspired the adage that “money never sleeps on Wall Street,” Reeder’s choreography depicts frantic activity as the economy tanks. Reeder’s work was supported by a grant from the Jerome Robbins Foundation. (Robbins was the choreographer who helped create musicals like “West Side Story,” “The King and I” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”)

The Sacramento Ballet was the smallest of the five companies that received grants supporting new work from the Robbins Foundation during last year’s funding cycle. Reeder was a dancer with the American Ballet Theatre and the New York City Ballet before embarking on a career as a choreographer.

Also on the program will be “Random Bond” by Matthew Neenan, who was another recipient of a Robbins Foundation grant last year, for a piece he created for a company other than Sacramento Ballet.  He was the grand prize winner of Sacramento Ballet’s Capital Choreography Competition in 2009.

He danced for more than a decade with the Pennsylvania Ballet, where he now serves as choreographer in residence.

Another piece on the program is “Series of Unrelated Events” by Viktor Kabanaiev, who trained with the Vaganova School in St. Petersburg, Russia. His choreography has won prizes in Japan, Europe and in this country.

Sacramento area choreographer Nolan T’Sani will contribute a piece called “Handel with Care,” set to music by Baroque-era composer G.F. Handel. T’Sani was a solist with the New York City Ballet for 10 years. In addition, Nicole Haskins, a dancer with Sacramento Ballet, will contribute “Pieces of Eight,” incorporating music by Beethoven.

Tickets are $40, available at http://www.mondaiarts.org or (530) 754-2787. There is limited seating for the Mondavi Center performance, but the “Modern Masters” program also will be performed Saturday, May 21, at the new Three Stages performing arts complex at Folsom Lake College in Folsom.

For the Three Stages performance, go online to http://www.ThreeStages.net or call (916) 608-6888.
