The Sarasota Ballet would like to offer complimentary tickets to the students, faculty and staff of The Ringling College of Art and Design to the matinee performances of this weekend’s production of

De Valois, Balanchine & Robbins (April 29 – 30) at the Sarasota Opera House.

This program includes George Balanchine's Valse-Fantaisie, a beautiful and romantic piece, which is matched against the fast paced and exhilarating virtuosic showcase that is Tarantella.

Dame Ninette de Valois’ striking and dramatic Checkmate portrays the game of Chess, with the pieces imbued with human emotion, watch as the Black Queen stalks her victims across the stage.

The program ends with The Sarasota Ballet premiere of Jerome Robbins’ Fancy Free. On shore leave from World War 2, three sailors let off steam in a New York Bar, hilarity ensues. Fancy Free later became the widely-popular musical comedy On The Town and is known as one of Robbins’ greatest successes.

To view a brief clip of Dame Ninette de Valois’ Checkmate visit https://vimeo.com/213086226

To reserve your tickets e-mail graphics@sarasotaballet.org with the number of tickets you want and the matinee performance you wish to attend.

All Faiths Food Bank Campaign Against Summer Hunger

Attachment(s):
Food Items Most Needed.pdf  Size: 181 Kb

There's a real problem in our community and the local food bank has asked for our help.

According to All Faiths Food Bank, when school ends, hunger begins for those students who get meals at school, their younger siblings, and for other kids who simply aren't on the radar of the agencies that gather data. Each year, thousands of children spend the summer without knowing where or when they will eat again.

Very conservative estimates place the number of school children in our community who face daily hunger at 21,000. When we factor in the 'invisible children' - the younger siblings of those school children and others who aren't included in official counts - the number of hungry kids is closer to 40,000.

You can help by dropping off your nonperishable food at the All Faiths Food Barrel at the north entrance of the Keating Center. Academic Affairs will be collecting through May 15. (See the attached document for food items most needed).

Thank you for your donations!
