The Philip Glass opera “Kepler,” will have its American premiere during the Festival. The opera is about astronomer Johannes Kepler…awesome!

The dance lineup includes performances by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet….always beautiful!

The internationally known arts festival was started in Charleston in 1977 by composer Gian Carlo Menotti as a companion to his Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy. Here’s the performance line up: http://www.spoletousa.org/home/

“Home,” a dance about the AIDS crisis, will receive its premiere on Thursday, Dec. 1st, the day after Ailey opens its annual engagement at New York City Center. Rennie is one of the best and 100% faithful to old school hip hop.

For Alvin Ailey, a New Leader—and a New Style: The dance world will be watching the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater closely this fall—it’s the first season for the group’s new artistic director, Robert Battle, who replaced longtime director Judith Jamison. Adding to the challenge: The dancers are trying a new, unfamiliar dance style. They are tackling Gaga, a form of contemporary dance known for aggressive physicality and dramatic, raw power.
