Vivaldi’s Four Seasons 

When: March 9-26 2017
Price: $30-$89

The retro pedigree is obvious from the title. When Vivaldi wrote this suite of violin concerti, there were only four seasons in a year, not the endless barometric cavalcade we've encountered over the last two months. When Carolina Ballet's artistic director, Robert Weiss, set his new choreography on the famous quartet in 2014, critics praised its chromatic takes, abetted by Jennifer Aiello and Sydney de Briel's costumes and Ross Kolman's lights. Three years ago, the INDY praised the joyfulness in Vivaldi and Weiss's close contrasts of climates: the sprightly choreography of Spring, the sultry heat and sudden thunderstorms of Summer, the courtly dance of descending leaves in Fall, and the pristine, bracing chill of Winter. Of course, our emotions about the similar show unfolding outdoors these days remain more ambiguous. —Byron Woods
