DC: Culture Night - Frontier @ The Washington Ballet


Members joined us for an extraordinary IVY Culture Night featuring the world premiere of The Washington Ballet’s Frontier, a work inspired by President Kennedy’s aspirations for America to be a leader of artistic, cultural, and intellectual excellence — and to be the first to land a man on the moon. Frontier is the first-ever commissioned work by visionary Artistic Director, Julie Kent, and was choreographed by renowned American dancer and choreographer, Ethan Stiefel.

Before we took our seats for the performance, we experienced a private guided backstage tour of the Kennedy Center’s Opera House with a great group of IVY members. As part of the evening’s program, we were also treated to two additional performances: “Lilac Garden (Jardin aux Lilas),” created by English choreographer Antony Tudor, who was credited as the master of “psychological ballet”; and a Company premiere of “The Dream,” a delightful interpretation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream created by Sir Frederick Ashton, one of the most influential dance figures of the 20th century.
