Parlay legend into ballet with ‘Gaspar: A Pirate Fantasy’

By John Fleming, Times Performing Arts Critic
In Print: Thursday, January 26, 2012

Gaspar: A Pirate Fantasy returns for Gasparilla, with two performances this weekend. The buccaneer ballet, with choreography by Christopher Fleming and music by David Goldstein, is, of course, based on the legend of Jose Gaspar, who supposedly pillaged the West Coast of Florida.

Alex Crozier-Jackson plays Gaspar, as he did last year, but he has a new leading lady, Adrianna de Svastich, in the role of Christina. Both are members of Ballet Fleming, the choreographer’s company in Philadelphia. Fleming’s Tampa Bay ties go back to the 1990s, when he was artistic director of the now-defunct Bay Ballet Theatre, which first staged Gaspar.

Proceeds go to three bay area nonprofit organizations; last year’s production raised more than $60,000. Performances are at 1 and 6 p.m. Sunday at Ferguson Hall of the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. $19-$39, with $10 tickets for children 12 and under. (813) 229-7827; strazcenter.org.
