Straz Center’s Next Generation Ballet Presents ‘Pirates and Cowboys’

The Straz Center’s Next Generation Ballet (NGB) will present Pirates and Cowboys May 11-12 in Ferguson Hall.

The high seas and Wild West meet in Pirates and Cowboys, NGB Artistic Director Philip Neal’s daring new production, a partial staging of Petipa’s Le Corsaire paired with Balanchine’s Western Symphony. Constructed as a suite of dances highlighting the exotic, high-stakes plot and gorgeous music, Le Corsaire (The Pirate) features brilliant dancing and a Gasparilla-worthy pirate crew. Western Symphony outfits NGB’s exuberant dancers as cowboys and dance-hall girls in this landmark Balanchine “old west” ballet. Songs include “Red River Valley,” “Good Night Ladies” and “Rye Whiskey.”

Pirates and Cowboys will be presented in Ferguson Hall May 11-12. Performances are Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Regularly priced tickets start at $20 and may be purchased by calling 813.229.STAR (7827) or 800.955.1045 outside Tampa Bay, in person at the Straz Center Ticket Office or online at www.strazcenter.org.
