The Goodale Theater at the Cowles Center
James Sewell Ballet presents two new works by nationally acclaimed choreographer Jennifer Hart and James Sewell Ballet veteran Eve Schulte and remounts Sewell’s “Opera Moves.” Hart’s choreography has been deemed “not only inventive but heart-rending,” and she returns to James Sewell Ballet (following 2007’s “Lightspace”) to create a new vibrant work. Eve Schulte builds sweeping and delicate movement to songs about the concept of leaving, woven together with live performance by singer/keyboardist Linnea Mohn. Rounding out the evening, James Sewell Ballet classic “Opera Moves” showcases the troupe’s balletic elegance to moving operatic selections.
