Parsons Dance and East Village Opera Company -
Presented by DANCECleveland and Opera Cleveland
June 11, 2011 – Ohio Theatre, PlayhouseSquare
Parsons brings the most ambitious production in the history of his 22-year-old dance company to Cleveland. Titled Remember Me, this high-energy mix of contemporary American dance, opera and rock music combines the athleticism of Parsons Dance with an exhilarating live vocal performance by recording artists EVOC (East Village Opera Company). The work creates a storyline that connects EVOC’s signature operative arias with Parsons’ original choreography resulting in a thoroughly modern re-telling of a classic story of tragic love. Parsons Dance tours some 32 weeks each year at prestigious theaters and festivals around the world. It is the only dance company in history to perform at all three Spoleto Festivals – Italy, Australia and the U.S. – in a single year.
