FIREBIRD & A Tribute to Russian Ballet & Its Composers
Our 2018-2019 Season opens with the classic Russian fairy tale, Firebird. This spellbinding ballet combines all the elements of a great story-a handsome prince, a beautiful princess, and an evil sorcerer. Firebird is set to a powerful score by Igor Stravinsky. Tchaikovsky was an inspiration to Stravinsky and the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto is considered one of his greatest. Zalman Raffael, will take on this monumental work to open the season. Aram Khatucturian’s Spartacus has become a staple of Russian ballet. Robert Weiss’ pas de deux evokes the Russian spirit of the music with bravura, lifts, turns and jumps.
The workshop will be held in the Fletcher Opera Theater at Duke Energy Center in downtown Raleigh.
You will learn how to take the most demanding action images - high speed movement, fluid action in low light and rapidly changing lighting situations! Open to ANY skill level photographer with a camera that has Shutter and Manual settings.
You will not only build a portfolio of great images for your viewing and display pleasure, but also you will be able to apply the learned skills to ANY indoor sports activity, dance recital, play, orchestral performance and more.
The session will begin with a review of the necessary camera settings and photographic techniques, followed by the chance to photograph the dancers as they go through their paces.
Between acts your images will be reviewed and critiqued so you can keep progressing throughout the event.
