Lift Me Higher! A Tribute to Bobby Darin is a hybrid performance that is created under the auspices of Unbelievably Done! Productions in association with Ballet Enchanté. It will feature original choreography set to recordings of Darin songs interspersed with live performances of other Darin songs as performed by vocalist Joe Ferrara & pianist Eric Olsen.
The choreography is contemporary ballet; the 6 dances that will be performed are Dream Lover; Artificial Flowers; Once Upon a Time; Softly, As in the Morning Sunrise; That Darn Cat; & Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher & Higher.
A broad spectrum of themes & emotions will be explored, ranging from the innocent and naive (Dream Lover) to how we cope with grief (Artificial Flowers) to the pathos of nostalgia (Once Upon a Time) to the yin & yang of love (Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise) to the redemption of the human spirit (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher & Higher).
Joe Ferrara and Eric Olsen will perform a broad sampling of Darin’s work, including audience-favorites Mack The Knife, Beyond the Sea, Happy, 18 Yellow Roses, & Charade.
