    Dance with Death
      Death and beauty, art's timeless pair, are brought together on the Sottile stage just in time for the spookiest season of the year. Ballet Evolution's Dance Macabre, choreographed by artistic director Jonathan Tabbert, is divided into three parts, each with its own haunting selection of music and narrative. The concept of Dance Macabre (or Danse Macabre in the original French) was originally an allegory developed in the Middle Ages before it later evolved into the musical score of the same title composed by Camille Saint-Saëns. The story held that, once a year, Death would revive the deceased from their slumber with the wailings of his fiddle. The myth was meant to convey death as the great equalizer. All beings, no matter their social standing or circumstances in their corporeal life, are subject to the same fate.
