SOCIAL CLIMES

For dancers with two left feet

October 20, 2002|ANN CONWAY | TIMES STAFF WRITER

Decked out in the invitation-prescribed "equestrienne, Gypsy or bohemian" attire, supporters of the Philharmonic Society of Orange County dined under the stars before attending the U.S. premiere on Oct. 12 of Theatre Zingaro's "Triptyk," a French equestrian ballet set to Stravinsky and Boulez.

The society spent "six years of dreaming, 18 months of scheming, and tonight we are beaming with pride," society executive director Dean Corey told guests as they feasted on goulash at tables topped with lanterns and flowers. Afterward, the crowd swept into a darkened, incense-scented tent to watch the 23 horses perform ballet moves with dancers from Kerala, India.
