Pygmalion ballet premieres at BU
<i>Pygmalion</i> ballet premieres at BU
Online interview audio now available Conductor Cayenna Ponchione and composer Santino DeAngelo speak with WSKG's Bill Snyder "Pygmalion: A Lyrical Ballet," a new work written by Binghamton University student Santino DeAngelo, will have its world debut Wednesday at the Anderson Center's Watters Theater.

The story is based on the Greek myth of an artist who falls in love with the statue that he creates, which then turns into a real woman.
From the page to the stage, the ballet's origins and production are entirely local, said Endicott native DeAngelo, 19, a BU junior studying classical mythology and theater. The 30-piece orchestra is made up of local professional musicians, and the dancers are from the BU dance department.
Helping DeAngelo are BU dance professor JoEllen Kuhlman, who helped conceive the idea and acts as choreographer, and Cayenna Ponchione, an internationally known conductor and percussionist from Ithaca.

Wednesday, October 20, 8pm
