UNLV Dance opens its season with "In Orchestra 4: Daphnis and Chloe," the fourth collaboration between UNLV Dance and the UNLV Symphony Orchestra. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, and at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Dance professors Dolly Kelepecz-Momot and Louis Kavouras reimagine Maurice Ravel's 1912 ballet Daphnis and Chloe. The original work was created for Serge Diagalev's Ballet Russes and was choreographed by Michael Folkine. This reimagining creates a contemporary mix of ballet and modern dance choreography, bringing a timeless tale of innocence and love to life. The concert also features Ravel's powerful work Bolero, with new choreography by dance professor Cathy Allen, and lighting by UNLV dance design specialist Michael Jarett.
