George Balanchine’s Donizetti Variations

Balanchine created Donizetti Variations, named after composer Gaetano Donizetti whose music for the opera Don Sebastian is featured in the ballet, to mark the 100th anniversary of Italy’s unification. New York City Ballet premiered this “cheerful and sunny work” alongside La Sonnambula and Monumentum Pro Gesualdo in November 1960 as part of “Salute to Italy,” celebrating the Italian centennial event.

Ricardo Graziano’s Amorosa
A January 2019 ballet by The Sarasota Ballet’s Resident Choreographer Ricardo Graziano, Amorosa sets five couples clad in crimson and black to extracts from Antonio Vivaldi’s Cello Concertos. This performance marks the first occasion for which Amorosa has been performed since its World Premiere.
