Lift Me Higher! A Tribute To Bobby Darin
June 15 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
“Lift Me Higher! A Tribute to Bobby Darin” is a hybrid performance that is created under the auspices of Unbelievably Done! Productions in association with Ballet Enchante. It will feature original choreography that is set to recordings of Darin songs; the dances will be interspersed with live performances of other Darin songs as performed by vocalist Joe Ferrara & pianist, Eric Olsen.
The choreography is contemporary ballet; the 6 dances that will be performed are: Dream Lover; Artificial Flowers; Once Upon a Time; Softly, As in the Morning Sunrise; That Darn Cat; & Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher & Higher. There is a broad spectrum of themes & emotions that are explored, ranging from the innocent & naive (Dream Lover) to how we cope with grief (Artificial Flowers) to the pathos of nostalgia (Once Upon a Time) to the yin & yang of love (Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise) to the redemption of the human spirit (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher & Higher).
Joe Ferrara & Eric Olsen will perform a broad sampling of Darin’s work, including audience-favorites: Mack The Knife, Beyond the Sea, Happy, 18 Yellow Roses, & Charade.
