Months go by without a single interesting piece of ballet, classical music, or opera, and then October rolls around and you get six things on the same weekend. Go figure. The Nature of Light Island Moving Company’s contribution to the cornucopia, a program featuring a new ballet by Artistic Director Miki Ohlsen, as well as dances from José Limon, Colin Connor, and Associate Artistic Director Danielle Genest. An ensemble of live musicians will perform under the direction of Adrienne Taylor. The performance happens at the newly restored Newport Congregational Church, marking a shift for a company known for roaming the island but usually in the grand mansions. The production runs through Saturday — the final show is pricier but includes an open bar and catered intermission.
