It’s back! Variations/Collaborations is an annual evening of dynamic dance and music, featuring vibrant choreography and brilliant young artists. Metropolitan Ballet Company will present contemporary ballets by two Princess Grace Foundation Award-winning artists: Tommie-Waheed Evans and Jenelle Figgins. Their extraordinary dances will premiere alongside new work by their artistic contemporary, Sarah Mettin, Metropolitan’s Artistic Associate. Sharing the stage with Metropolitan are special guest artists from the Washington Ballet’s Professional Training Division. The Washington Ballet, one of the top companies on the East Coast, is under the direction of Julie Kent, former Principal with American Ballet Theatre. Live music will be performed by talented musicians from the ATLYS quartet, featuring twins Genevieve and Sabrina Tabby, Settlement Music School Alumnae. The Tabby twins first performed with Metropolitan as young musicians in 2005. Tommie-Waheed Evans, an in-demand choreographer, was a member of Philadanco, which also shared the stage with Metropolitan in 2018. Variations/Collaborations is a fully-produced performance of exceptional quality. As part of its mission, Metropolitan keeps ticket prices low, so that as many people as possible can enjoy this live performance. Metropolitan Ballet, founded and directed by Lisa Collins Vidnovic, (formerly of Pennsylvania Ballet) will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2021.
Variations/Collaborations Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door. Tickets available for online purchase HERE. Further information & group sales: 215-663-1665.
