Synopsis

Everlasting Arms, created for FSBT in 2009 by internationally-recognized choreographer Viktor Plotnikov, celebrates the sculpture of famed Delaware sculptor Charles Parks. Mr. Plotnikov, who has choreographed for many American ballet companies and the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, has won best choreographer honors at five international ballet competitions around the globe. Mr. Parks’ sculptures are in museums and public and private collections around the world.    

Nonsense in the Sense of Innocence, another major Plotnikov piece for FSBT, is a witty, edgy, quirky, elegant, entertaining work in five movements set to music by Beethoven, Chopin, Johann Strauss and Vivaldi.
