Aspen Santa Fe Ballet: 

Beautiful Decay

Audiences are in for a surprise this summer when ASFB premieres its first-ever evening-length ballet: long-time collaborator Nicolo Fonte’s Beautiful Decay. Featuring an original set design by Tony Award-winner Mimi Lien, and the timeless music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Max Richter’s reinterpretation of the same, this haunting work juxtaposes daring athleticism against the reality of aging. Joining ASFB are guest artists Hilary Cartwright and Gregg Bielemeier—two septuagenarians with distinguished dance careers.

“ evening of explosive, athletic dance that leaves the audience speechless after just the first act...” - The Dance Journal
