DANCE | "Slightly Sinful" 

Rochester City Ballet will open its 2016-17 season — its first full season under Artistic Director David Palmer — with "Slightly Sinful," a three-piece program that includes renowned Flemish choreographer Danny Rosseel's work of the same name. Rosseel, the former resident choreographer of the Royal Ballet of Flanders, set his "Slightly Sinful" to the music of Thomas Oboe Lee, and presented it in 1996 on Flemish national public broadcaster BRTN to acclaim. City Ballet's performance of the piece will be its New York premiere, and Rosseel is in Rochester to restage his work. As its name might imply, "Slightly Sinful" explores ideas of hidden desires, sinful thoughts, and longing through sensuous movement. An interesting key point of "Slightly Sinful" is a large table created by local James Kelly for the dancers to perform on, around, and with. Also on the program is Palmer's "Mist," set to Philip Glass's Violin Concerto No. 1, and a world premiere, also by Palmer, which was announced at City Ballet's InStudio open rehearsal.

Rochester City Ballet will perform "Slightly Sinful" on Friday, September 9, through Sunday, September 11, at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. on Sunday. $37-$47. 389-2170; boxoffice.naz.edu; rochestercityballet.com.
