KING OF THE MASK - ballet trailer
Experience the grand illusion of “The King of the Mask.”
“The King of the Mask” is the lifelong reflection of the celebrated Cuban artist Roman Valdes. As a boy, tormented by the realization of death, he crowned himself as “The King of the Mask,” which immortalized him in an eternal existence within a world in which fantasy and reality become indistinguishable.
Once composer Paul Joseph entered into the mysterious world of the King, he was inspired to bring out the images, colors, moods and feelings of the Kingdom through a fifty-minute symphonic fantasy. This collaboration of visual art and music then evolved to incorporate a third discipline: dance.
This video, produced by Roman Valdes, incorporates the performances of Ballet Long Island and the Queensboro Symphony Orchestra.
