Strictly Gershwin (Southampton)
The audience is treated to a mix of music from the 20s and 30s alongside more modern numbers, for an evening of nostalgia and stunningly versatile performances from English National Ballet who perform classical ballet alongside ballroom, tap, jazz and surprisingly even roller blading to create fabulous visual effect.
Act 11 Gershwin in Hollywood features Gershwin`s most famous work, “Rhapsody in Blue”. Erina Takahashi and Zdenek Konvalina`s fantastic dancing only serves to enhance what is an all-time favourite tune.
“Fascinatin` Rhythm” as a light hearted Finale is a spectacular performance of music, movement, and colour. A veritable feast for the senses.
Throughout this brilliant show Gareth Valentine not only conducts his orchestra for this amazing extravaganza but keeps the audience amused with his obvious enjoyment of his work.
Unforgettable music, amazing costumes and great atmosphere serve to make this a show well worth watching!
