Ballet Meets The Beatles is a live performance by Chevalier Ballet to the songs of The Beatles performed by tribute band Across The Pond. They are joined by a string quartet on such songs as Eleanor Rigby, All You Need Is Love, A Day in The Life, Here Comes The Sun and many more. The show begins with Across The Pond performing an ‘Ed Sullivan Set’ of early rockers before they are joined by Chevalier and The Taconic String Quartet. Ballet Meets The Beatles has been performed to enthusiastic audiences at The Kaye Playhouse and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in Manhattan as well as theaters in upstate New York and Vermont. The show heads to England in Spring 2020. Guaranteed to make you want to sing, scream and dance!
Chevalier Ballet is a Manhattan based company founded by British choreographer Sara Knight in January 2018 providing professional touring experience for select students of SLK Ballet (the official training school of Chevalier Ballet under the direction of Sara Knight) and select audition candidates. Chevalier Ballet Company dancers gain experience by performing and bringing their professionalism and artistry to a wide audience through touring, workshops, residencies, and cultural exchanges. Across The Pond has been performing the music of the Beatles throughout the Northeastern United States since 2008. No wigs or costumes, they focus on capturing the joy of this timeless music and are always excited to bring it to new audiences. Band members include Jonathan Newell, Marc Clayton, Alan Dunham, Tim Wozniuk, and Ed Jahn.
