Friday, March 25 • 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

A Comedy Of Errors

Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, 777 North Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL 34236

Program 6 brings the World Premiere of A Comedy of Errors, a full-length balletic adaptation of William Shakespeare’s iconic comedy The Comedy of Errors, to the stage. Sir David Bintley, one of today’s most sought-after choreographers, puts his personal touch on this beloved story, with a score commissioned by renowned composer Matthew Hindson and sets and costumes by celebrated designer Dick Bird. Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2020 for his services to dance, Bintley has spent the last 40 years choreographing for some of the world’s most prominent ballet companies. Simultaneously, he has created a reputation for choreographing works that seamlessly use dance as part of a rich narrative and has established himself as one of Britain’s finest choreographers. “Matthew, Dick, and I have dreamt of bringing our dance version of Shakespeare’s most outrageous comedy to the stage for almost a decade now,” explains Bintley. “I hope that it will provide a wonderful vehicle for the vibrant and energetic dancers and musicians of The Sarasota Ballet and that Floridians will love its humor and joy – something which we desperately need after the past year.” For more information and tickets check out the Van Wezel website!
