'Tribute to Ballets Russes' Offers UK Employee, Student Discount

Published: Sep 11, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 10, 2013) — In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the "Rite of Spring," the Lexington Ballet presents “Tribute to Ballets Russes” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Lexington Opera House. As in years past, the ballet company is providing a discounted ticket price for University of Kentucky students, faculty and staff. This year, employees will save $3 and students will save $10.

 

Regarded as the most influential company of the 20th century, Ballets Russes promoted groundbreaking collaborations and completely reinvigorated the art of dance. In 1913, Igor Stravinsky, the composer, and Vaslav Nijinsky, of the Ballets Russes, premiered the "Rite of Spring." The fascination for this work has endured and "The Rite of Spring" is now considered to be one of the most influential musical pieces of the 20th century.

 

In honor of Ballets Russes and the 100th anniversary of the "Rite of Spring," Luis Dominguez, of the Lexington Ballet Company, and Cesar Leal, of EnVaGe, have crafted a special evening of celebration. Witness "The Rite of Spring," "The Dying Swan," "Afternoon of a Faun" and "Chopiniana" interpreted for audiences of all ages.

 

UK students, faculty and staff can purchase tickets for "Tribute to Ballet Russes" through Ticketmaster.com and at the Lexington Center ticket office via phone at 859-233-3535. To get the discount, individuals should use the code word WILDCATS. A valid UK picture ID is required for all students, faculty and staff.

 

UK employees can visit Human Resources’ Employee Discount Program website at http://www.uky.edu/HR/edp/ for details on other discounts offered by area businesses.
