I took some glee in passing this sensibility onto the young men of Studio Company and the audiences were along for the ride! Kidding aside, our collaborators at The In Series, and Carla Hubner in particular, make for spectacular artistic partners, and the show is enjoying an amazing success.
In January, The Washington Ballet Studio Company is collaborating with DC-based musical organization the InSeries (our third collaboration in three years!) to produce WAM! (wolfgang amadeus mozart), an original full-evening dance/theater work staged by Associate Artistic Director David Palmer, dancer Jared Nelson, InSeries Founder/Director Carla Hubner, and myself.
, David and I had a 5-hour retreat immersing ourselves in Mozartâ€™s music and his letters. The scope of the piece is epic although its execution will be intimate.

Ballet, says In Series founder and artistic director Carla Hübner, "doesn't have to be this great theatrical thing.
"We have the singers interacting with the dancers, with constant weaving between the two," Hübner
"They're very beautiful, very romantic, very French," says Hübner

"The singers have found it so inspiring to look at their repertory in a different way and to watch the young dancers' dedication and virtuosity," Hübner

On the surface you might not expect a collaboration between the InSeries's Carla Hubner -- originally from Chile -- and the Washington Ballet's Septime Webre -- of Cuban descent -- to result in a show devoted to French music.
Just wonderful French cabaret music.'' So while brainstorming with Hubner
and Palmer about the focus for a new show, Webre was quick to add French cabaret to Hubner's idea of performing French art songs, or short classical compositions from the romantic period.
, ''In my former incarnation as a performing pianist, I played a lot of Debussy -- that was one of my specialties -- and my master's thesis as a musicologist was on Henri Duparc.'' Hubner still dabbles as a performing pianist: She'll join Frank Conlon to accompany the five singers and 12 young dancers from The Washington Ballet Studio Company
in La Vie En Rose.
