The Israel Ballet will present MOON, an evening of premieres, on September 21, 2013 at the Herzliya Performing Arts Center. 21:00

The Israel Ballet will premiere three works, in an evening that embraces the classical and the contemporary. The program will include:

ONE – a new dance by Israeli choreographer Idan Sharabi. According to the choreographer, it is a dance based on sensations and emotion, relating to the concept of “the mirror” – both internal and external.

Les Sylphides – graceful dancers in white costumes, romantic music – for many, this is the image conjured by the word ‘ballet.” Taking its name from a mythological creature, the ballet was created by Michel Fokine to the music of Chopin around 1908. Les Sylphides was the first abstract ballet, one that did not rely on a narrative framework.

Moon Over Jupiter (2010) – the Israeli premiere of choreographer Dwight Rhoden, to music by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
