La Vie en Rose
The In Series had another successful collaboration with the Washington Ballet Studio Company in performances of La Vie en Rose at the GALA Theatre Jan. 17 – 19. In Series Artistic Director and Founder Carla Hübner and Frank Conlon provided piano accompaniment for the singers and dancers in pieces choreographed by Septime Webre and David Palmer. The program interpreted works ranging from Claude Debussy’s Claire de Lune to the haunting lyrics of Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf. Soprano Fleta Hylton brought the sold-out audience to its feet with her rendition of Piaf’s Je ne regrette rien.
