Film: Garden of Earthly Delights at #SalemOR Public Library – May 16th

A CCTV recording of The Salem Concert Band and the Rainbow Dance Theatre performing the…

Garden of Earthly Delights

Free screening of The Garden of Earthly Delights, a bold new ballet by Leroy Osmon, with Salem Concert Band and Rainbow Dance Theatre (Recorded January 28, 2018 at Central High School in Independence)

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Salem Public Library | Loucks Auditorium

If you missed the original performance, this is your chance to watch a professionally recorded video of the original.

The Salem Concert Band and the Rainbow Dance Theatre performed the Garden of Earthly Delights in January. This modern ballet is one hour long and is truly amazing.  It reminded several audience members of Cirque du Soleil.  We were fortunate to have the performance videoed by CCTV and professionally recorded.

Inspired by the 1504 painting by Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights.

The eponymous painting is a triptych, a work of art that is divided into three sections that are hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open.

Sponsored by: The Salem Concert Band

Original Press Release describing the performance:

The ballet consists of an Introduction, three Acts (each having four Scenes) and an Interlude to Act 3. The Introduction, inspired by the face piece of the Bosch painting (viewable when the triptych is closed) depicts the creation story. Act I depicts the Garden of Eden (the left panel), Act II depicts The Garden of Earthly Delights (the center panel) and Act III depicts Hell (the right panel).

Composer Leroy Osmon’s ballet for wind band and dance artists was first performed in Mexico in 2006 and received its U.S. premiere on July 15, 2015, at the World Association for Symphonic Band Ensembles Conference in San Jose, California.

Choreographers Valerie Bergman, Darryl Thomas and Kristi Lauren have consistently produced some of the most innovative and creative dance works in the medium. Their never-before-seen realization of The Garden of Earthly Delights promises to be a memorable experience. The masterful, artistic dancers of Rainbow Dance Theatre are well-suited to bring this work to the stage.

Rainbow Dance Theatre consistently delights audiences of all ages with what has been described by Sheryl Dare, Honolulu Advertiser, as “pull-out-the-stops celebration of … dancing that pays homage to world dance and music influences.” For this show, John Skelton will unleash the full power of the Salem Concert Band, creating atmospheric sounds and colors with wind instruments and percussion that many in the audience will have never experienced before. This performance will be held in the magnificent auditorium at Central High School, which is best suited for this show since the band and dancers will be sharing the stage.

The Salem Concert Band has been recognized for artistic achievements by the Oregon Arts Commission, supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.”
