Modern Masters brings the work of three internationally renowned choreographers together for a hand-selected program that shines a spotlight on some of the most innovative, spectacularly grand dance that’s come out of the ballet world. Christopher Wheeldon’s Ghosts draws inspiration from a lyrical score by Grammy-nominated composer and Nashville resident C.F. Kip Winger (of American rock band Winger), while wit and charisma take center stage in Jiří Kylián’s Six Dances set to Mozart’s Six German Dances. George Balanchine’s masterwork Western Symphony caps off the evening with a rollicking journey to the rugged Old West. An enormous cast of cowboys and dance hall girls showcase Balanchine’s blend of highly demanding, spirited and playful choreography, illustrating why he’s known as the father of American ballet.
