New Bedford Ballet Performs A Treasury of Dance


New Bedford Ballet will culminate its summer season with four performances of A Treasury of Dance, an innovative blend of classical and contemporary choreography.  This creative exploration of dance styles will be performed on Friday, August 4, at 5:30 and 7:00 pm and Saturday, August 5, at 1:00 and 2:30pm, at the NBB Community Theatre, 2343 Purchase St. New Bedford.   

The Littlest Matryoshka is a children’s ballet created by New Bedford Ballet’s artistic director Rebecca Waskiel-Marchesseault, with choreography by Ms. Waskiel-Marchesseault, James Brown and Eugenia Zinovieva.  Inspired by Corinne Demas Bliss’s book of the same name, this children’s ballet will bring smiles to young and old as the audience is brought to Russia to follow the adventure of a lost Matryoshka doll.

Original contemporary choreography by New Bedford Ballet advanced students and classical and contemporary dance pieces choreographed by NBB instructors James Brown and Erin Petitjean Allen will also be included in this artistic collage of dance styles. 

Tickets are $10.00 for Adults and $5.00 for Seniors, Students and Children. All proceeds from this performance will support the New Bedford Ballet, a non-profit organization.  Tickets are limited and sell quickly, so reserve your tickets soon by contacting the New Bedford Ballet at 508-993-1387.
