The latest installment of Festival Ballet’s Up Close On Hope series includes two world premieres, performed in an intimate 85-seat black box setting. First up is Gianni Di Marco’s Lady of the Camellias, based on the Dumas novel about a courtesan who falls in love but gets driven away by her paramour’s shamed father. Then it’s Viktor Plotnikov’s House of Bernarda Alba, based on the Federico Garcia Lorca’s play from 1936 about a Spanish widow’s totalitarian control over five daughters. (The play features no on-stage male characters, though the ballet adds a male part.) That one features an original score by Sonya Belousova.
