Society Features Joffrey Ballet Leaves lowans 'Warmed Up' By Les Zacheis The City Center Jeffrey Ballet closed a three-night stand Wednesday night at Hancher auditorium before another virtual sell-out house. Judging from the response. Eastern lowans really needed the ballet series to bring a burst of warmth to relieve the rigorous Iowa winter. Wednesday's audience appeared to be the most responsive of the three houses, applauding generously many of the individual dance routine bits. A clue to this rapport may be found in the familiarity of the Johann Strauss music of the opening work The .solitary solo number was Gay Wallstrom a pretty bal- lerina who exuded grace and oeauty. Emotional The second presentation was the "Moor's Pavane" with music by Henry Pureell. This was the same mime of marital tragedy that was presented at Hancher by Rudoff Nureyev and the National Ballet of Canada last March. Christian Holder, who gave such a splendid per- formance Tuesday, repeated with another stellar role. He was superb in the role of the giving a portrayal of ill suppressed volcanic emotion. The evening closed with a contemporary work, "Sacred Grove on Mount No forestry was in evidence, but the pas d'action suggested a sort of fertility rite. A scrim was employed to give an eerie effect for an introduction. Alan Raph's musical score was a sen- suous and enhancing accompa- niment. (He also wrote the Monday night's music for Sledgehammer The pas de deux by the nup- tial couple included a .sensa- tional elevation. This was set to a segue by a six piece rock combo in the pit. However only five were to be heard. A drum- mer, who's sole dynamic ap- peared to be "cadence de was successful in completely drowning out an enthusiastic but abortive effort by a flute player, even though the instrument was amplified.
