Dance Alive National Ballet presents Anna Karenina on Oct. 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Gainesville. Drama, intrigue, love and infidelity, this is the story of Russian beauty Anna Karenina. Based on Tolstoy’s magnificent novel, the ballet, a world premier created by Executive Artistic Director Kim Tuttle explores a wellspring of family dynamics, social issues, and changing times. With stunning sets by Mihai Ciupe and striking projections by Houston Wells, choreographer Kim Tuttle’s production is about a particular slice of life , in a particular time, with very specific people. It’s the choreographer’s job to honor the original work to the best of his/her ability. That’s the challenge, and that’s the joy. The performance holds a world of challenges, but what fun in meeting those challenges. Tickets are available at 800-905-ARTS or 352-392-ARTS. More information at info@dancealiveorg.
First United Methodist Church will present a Vivaldi program on Oct. 27 at 4 p.m., featuring the Gloria, with string orchestra, organ, vocal soloists and choirs. More information at FUMCGNV.org.
