June 9 Free Performance on Branford Green
Celebrate the art of dance al fresco when New Haven Ballet returns to the Branford Green for a free outdoor Summer Dance Concert in downtown Branford. The concert will be presented Friday, June 9, at 6:00 p.m.
New Haven Ballet will perform excerpts from Artistic Director Lisa Kim Sanborn’s Coppélia, which premiered at the Shubert Theatre New Haven on May 27. Also planned for the night’s performance are David Parson’s Étude and the ballets Vivaldi Concerto and Cavaliere Allegro. A school student demonstration inviting young audience members is also planned. Guest Artist Michael Requena will join the cast, and Children’s Division Director Timothy Fountain will reprise his role as Dr. Coppélius.
Located at 1011 Main Street in downtown Branford, the performance is presented on the Town Green in Branford’s open-air shopping and dining district. On-street parking is available. Admission is free for lawn seating. Audience members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to enjoy an evening of ballet under the stars.
This performance is sponsored by the Branford Community Foundation and the Branford Arts and Cultural Alliance.
