"[Lady of the Camellias]…a stunning spectacle of leaps and spins that feel larger than life in the tiny space that is the black box theatre." –

Commissioned in 2016 and created specifically for the Black Box Theatre, Gianni Di Marco's one-act Lady of the Camellias received resounding acclaim from critics and audiences alike. The powerful ballet tells the story of Marguerite Gautier whose illicit romance unravels into betrayal, while a debilitating illness consumes her.

The mixed repertory program will also feature world premiere works by local arts leader and choreographer yon Tande and Boston-based choreographer Kurt Douglas.
