Nashville Ballet, Alias Chamber Ensemble and Watkins Join Forces, Tonight Through May 19



In this week's Scene, John Pitcher has a fabulous preview of the May 17-19 Nashville Ballet performance, part of the company's Emergence program. This week's event is especially ambitious, as the ballet is collaborating with Alias Chamber Ensemble and Watkins College of Art, Design & Film.

Unfortunately, in the print edition of the Scene, the dates are wrong. The correct dates are Thursday through Saturday, May 17 through 19. We regret the error.

Here's a tease of Pitcher's preview.

Nashville Ballet's Emergence program calls to mind a science experiment. Every two years since 2004, Emergence has mixed new dance and music to create appealing choreographic potions. The best of these works become part of the ballet's repertoire.

This weekend, Emergence returns with one of its most ambitious programs to date. The series, which runs Thursday through Saturday at the Martin Center for Nashville Ballet, will feature four new dances staged in collaboration with the Alias Chamber Ensemble and Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. The highlight of the series will be the world premiere of Alias composer and cellist Matt Walker's Arabian Blues.
