CONSERVATORY YOUTH BALLET PRESENTS MOONLIGHT SONATA (IN THE 21st CENTURY)

  • Cape Cod Community College 2240 Iyannough Rd. (RT. 132) West Barnstable, Ma United States (map)

The Cape Conservatory Youth Ballet presents Moonlight Sonata (in the 21st Century), an original ballet written and choreographed by Jane E. Caputo. The afternoon opens with a recital by all members of the Conservatory Youth Ballet.

“I’ve loved the Sonata since I was a child; I can even remember the first time I heard it,” explained Caputo. “When I listen to the music, I visualize the dance. I am profoundly excited to present my vision, my interpretation of the music through dance to a live audience.”

- Jane E. Caputo

The ballet is based in classical technique with modern approaches in phrasing and form. As the two styles of dance merge throughout the sonata, Caputo weaves references to the moon: in the first movement, the New Moon; the second movement, the Full Moon; and in the final movement, the steps and formations suggest an Eclipse.
