After two seasons affirming its ability to stage ballet's full-length classics, Los Angeles Ballet shifts gears with a triptych of shorter works to open its 11th season. The newest is Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton's Untouched set to music by saxophonist/composer Curtis Macdonald, pianist Njo Kong Kie and Russian-born violist Lev "Ljova" Zhurbin. Dipping into its repertoire, LAB reprises George Balanchine's architectural and elegant Stravinsky Violin Concerto and the exuberant, tambourine-infused Tarantella and pas de six from August Bournonville's Napoli.
