Israeli mezzo-soprano Maya Lahyani takes the stage with LINES Ballet for a world premiere collaboration. Called a “resplendent” vocalist by the San Francisco Chronicle, Lahyani is a soloist with the Metropolitan Opera and recipient of the prestigious Adler Fellowship at San Francisco Opera. Lahyani and the dancers are joined by guest artist Meredith Webster, a beloved LINES Ballet company member for nearly a decade, who returns to share a new solo by Alonzo King.
The fall home season also heralds the revival of Meyer, featuring a score by acclaimed classical bassist Edgar Meyer. Meyer has been hailed by the New Yorker as “the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively un-chronicled history of his instrument.” In response to Meyer’s signature combination of bluegrass, jazz, folk, and classical music, King’s choreography — originally created for the company’s 30th anniversary — is alternately wistful and jubilant, infused with a playful sense of wonder. Set before Academy Award-winning designer Jim Doyle’s striking backdrop of synchronized water, Meyer is a lushly-textured landscape of movement and sound.
