Four seasons. Four stories. Four dances! Directed by Paul Gordon Emerson, and choreographed by Mr. Emerson and Company | E, To Sail Around the Sun is a unique and moving display of imagination and enchantment set to the timeless music of Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. Company | E's superb dancers grace the stage with actress and singer Amikaeyla Gaston as the gorgeous score is played by a quartet of National Symphony Orchestra musicians: Glenn Donnellan, Jennifer Kim and Wanzhen Li, violins; Tsuna Sakamoto, viola; and Eugena Chang, cello. All of these artists move seamlessly together to the music in this multimedia work that will take you to the sweet blossoming of spring, the sunny days of summer, the crisp mellowness of fall, and the frosty cheer of winter. Most enjoyed by age 4 and up. All patrons, regardless of age must have a ticket.
