Weaving a dream.
Tom Gold, the New York City Ballet soloist-turned-choreographer, embraces his childlike side in Dream Threads, a new work for dancers from the Orlando Ballet School and Orlando Ballet II. Premiering May 17 at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, the dance follows a young boy who catapults time forward at the tug of a magic thread. (In his NYCB days, Gold worked closely with director/choreographer Susan Stroman, who chose him for a Buster Keaton-type role in Double Feature.) Also on the program, titled "An American Dream," are two Balanchine works: Valse Fantaisie, performed by OBS and OBII dancers; and Stars and Stripes, featuring guest artists Abi Stafford and Jared Angle, who are current principals at NYCB.
