HOLLYWOOD HOLIDAYS

First Original Production!

December 28th, 2023, at the Orpheum Theatre of Downtown Los Angeles.

For Hollywood Ballet’s first original commissioned work, contemporary choreographer Andre Megerdichian has imagined to be sitting at a dinner table with the likes of Martha Graham, Gwen Verdon, Bob Fosse and José Limon - the latest being the founder of Limon Dance Company, where Megerdichian has truly danced, in the past.

Hollywood Ballet’s Dancers and Trainees have brought to life a multi-faceted look at family relationships in modern society to a musical journey from Frank Sinatra’s timeless classics to Max Richter’s interpretation of Vivaldi through Chopin's melancholic notes, some performed live by a piano and four strings
