Top American dancers unite for a ballet triumph in New Orleans | NOLA.com

Gregory Schramel and Marjorie Hardwick combined top dancers from Miami, Atlanta and New York into one company with shows in Baton Rouge and the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts.

 

Saturday’s concert, which closed the Fall series for the New Orleans Ballet Theatre, underscored the ambitions of the husband-and-wife creative team who founded the ad hoc troupe in 2003. Hardwick and Schramel could have pleased ballet fanatics simply by staging a series of pas de deux. Instead they presented George Balanchine’s “Who Cares?” (with spectacular live accompaniment from pianist Jesse Reeks), and balanced that effervescent celebration of Gershwin’s music, with a reprise of Schramel’s “Patriotism,” a dark-hued narrative piece about honor and ritual suicide.
