Dear Friend:

See a unique compilation from the broadcast premieres of 3 works by Lar Lubovitch.
The video premieres May 21 and is then available on-demand for 10 days only.
Three award-winning dances
The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company will present a unique compilation of highlights from the broadcast premieres of three acclaimed works by Lar Lubovitch including the duet from Concerto Six Twenty-Two, performed by the Lubovitch company; Othello, performed by San Francisco Ballet; and The Planets, created for a mixed ensemble of ice skaters – and non-skating dancers – from the US and Canada.

The free, on-demand program will be available for 10 days only. It will premiere on May 21 at 7:30pm EDT and can be subsequently viewed through May 31 at 7:30pm EDT. Reservations are required.
Concerto Six Twenty-Two received its world premiere at Carnegie Hall in 1986. The duet from Concerto Six Twenty-Two was subsequently performed in 1987 at the Dancing for Life event at the New York State Theatre, the first-ever response to the AIDS crisis by the dance community. The male duet gave the work special resonance in the face of the AIDS crisis, even though the theme is timeless.

Lubovitch’s Othello received its world premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1997. The acclaimed evening-length ballet, with an original score by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, was a joint production of the Lubovitch company, American Ballet Theatre, and San Francisco Ballet.

In addition to his achievements on the concert stage, in film, and on Broadway, Lubovitch has created award-winning ice-dancing works for many Olympians including Paul & Isabelle Duchesnay, John Curry, Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Brian Orser, JoJo Starbuck, and Paul Wylie. His feature-length ice-dance specials for television include The Planets for A&E, which was nominated for an International Emmy Award, a Cable AceAward, and a Grammy Award.

The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company is supported, in part, by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Leadership support is provided by Howard Gilman Foundation and New York Community Trust. Major support is provided by Arnhold Foundation (John & Jody Arnhold), Harkness Foundation for Dance, Little One Foundation, Lucky One Foundation, Shubert Foundation, A. Woodner Fund, and many other generous individuals and foundations.
