About

Featuring Le Corsaire Suite and world premiere by South African Choreographer Andile Ndlovu!

Columbia Classical Ballet’s Classic on Edge series is back. Don’t miss Classic on Edge 2023, featuring Le Corsaire Suite, and “OSMO", a world premiere commissioned by Artistic Director Brooklyn Mack, and created on Columbia Classic Ballet by South African choreographer Andile Ndlovu.

Le Corsaire suite is an abridged showing of the famous swashbuckling, damsel-saving Pirate ballet tale. Centering around Conrad, a Naval captain, who became leader of a group of Pirates, and Medora, a beautiful maiden who has been enslaved by the cunning merchant Lankendem. Medora's best friend Gulnara is also enslaved along with her, but not for long if Conrad has his say.

The World Premiere of “OSMO" is a piece inspired by osmosis. The idea that society has a way of functioning without us noticing or even thinking about how we move within public spacesI.e  a process of absorption or diffusion & suggestive of the flow of osmotic action. 

“OSMO is my take on how the day to day movement of people is usually effortless, and often in unconscious assimilation”   - Andile Ndlovu

We hope to see you at the show!
