Sunday, June 3 2018 | Set to the music of Modest Mussorgsky and Maurice Ravel, “Pictures at an Exhibition” is a collaborative work between island artist and “dance dad” Jonathan Kuzma, VCD Artistic Director Vadne Domeika and her senior dance students. The idea for the production came from Kuzma whose longtime intrigue with “Pictures at an Exhibition” began after he learned how it came to be: In 1874, Mussorgsky wrote a collection of piano solos in honor of artist/architect Viktor Hartmann by imagining he was walking through a posthumous exhibition of his friend’s work. Nearly 50 years later, Ravel completed an orchestration of the piano collection.
