Cleveland Ballet: A Look Back
November 14, 2018
Victor Lucas

We don’t always write a review of a dance concert that we’ve previewed. If we get the preview right, there’s little left to say. That was largely how we felt after the Friday 10/19/2018 performance of Momentum, Cleveland Ballet’s new music visualization of Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in G minor. Yes, the dancers performed the speedy steps well and yes it was certainly eye-opening to see all those talented new dancers, but in the Ohio Theater we were also more aware of the interweaving of small groups of dancers, a compositional strategy that spoke to the complexity of the choreography as well as the ability of all the dancers – company members and apprentices alike – to shine when their moment came. (More about the choreographer herself later.)
