Five Men and a Concerto

Mary Barton’s Five Men and a Concerto was choreographed in 2012 for the men of ARB.  Set to Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Oboe”, the choreography utilizes classical lines to create a strong movement that accentuates these male dancers’ strengths.  “I was looking to create a ballet that showed off the company men classically and lyrically.  I found the strength of the concerto’s to be a good fit as my aim was to show their power and grace.”
