American Repertory Ballet returns to The State this fall with a dazzling triple-bill. The program opens with an ARB premiere, Spring Waters, a pas de deux of boundless joy, choreographed by Asaf Messerer. Next is Kirk Peterson's The Eyes that Gently Touch, set to the driving rhythms of Philip Glass' Mad Rush, culminating in a dance replete of romance and thrilling movement. The performance concludes with another company premiere: Peterson's Carmen. Based on Georges Bizet's opera, Peterson tells the tale of Carmen, a passionate, free-spirited woman, the fickle Don Jose, and her love triangle between Don Jose and popular bullfighter Escamillo.
