The Friends of Cedarmere will host Dance Visions NY in an exciting ‘Eve of Halloween’ celebration at Cedarmere, the historic home of poet, journalist and civic leader William Cullen Bryant. With both classical and contemporary dance as well as live music, narration and visual art projections, this special program is an immersion in worlds of the imagination and of the divine: of spirits and conjurers, of mythic characters and apparitions. Included is Isadora Duncan’s groundbreaking “Dance of the Furies” to Gluck’s Orpheus in the Underworld, as well as original works by choreographer Beth Jucovy, selected and tailored for this singular holiday.
Shows are at 7 and 8:30 p.m., on Sunday, Oct. 30. Running continuously throughout the evening—before, during and after the shows—will be an old-fashioned ‘Frills & Chills’ Halloween Party deluxe in the Old Gothic Mill, complimentary for all ticket holders.
Ticket price is $25 per person, with proceeds to benefit the ongoing Mill Restoration. Seating is limited to 35 per show. Halloween costumes optional, but encouraged.
Payment can be made by mail to The Friends of Cedarmere PO Box 214, Roslyn, NY, 11576; or, at the door with cash, check or credit card. Walk-ins without a phone reservation cannot be guaranteed a seat.
