NUIT BLANCHE: AT THE OPÉRA GARNIER

JULY 11, 2014
NUIT BLANCHE:AT THE OPÉRA GARNIER
Bellevue House, Bellevue Ave., Newport RI

Patrons entered a lantern-lit garden, with live performances occurring unexpectedly among the allées, follies and ornamental pools of the Bellevue House gardens. A performance happening led the crowd into the glowing tent, where a short live auction raised funds for the Island Moving Co.’s educational programs. New York’s Tin Pan Band provided the music for dancing until midnight. The entire event evoked the magical Nuit Blanche in the City of Lights, during which Paris is alive with performance and music all night long.

Stay tuned for details on next year’s party of the summer!

September 26 & 27 – Brom Bones Tale

In September IMC performed a new original work choreographed by Associate Artistic Director Spencer Hering.

This head-spinning dance thriller was inspired by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and follows the conflict between the awkward and retiring Ichabod Crane and the town scamp Brom Bones over the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel.

The audience followed the action through the stunning gardens of Ron Fleming’s Bellevue House.
