The Lament of Bathsheba

This is a figure skating program examining the dual identity of the biblical Bathsheba as both queen and commoner (represented by the use of both an ornate purple costume and a plain black dress as the program progresses) as she navigates her grief following the loss of her son. The program is set to two versions of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, which references the story of Bathsheba. This was filmed prior to COVID-19. Choreographic Consulting: Carly Muñoz; Music: Leonard Cohen, K.D. Lang, and Kyle Landry; Videography: Carly Muñoz and Sami Winawer; Acknowledgements: Kelly, Scott, and Alex Requadt

Cast Photos for Songs You'd Never Sing

Songs You'd Never Sing - Premiere Episode

This is the PAD’s riff on the popular celebrity gala, Miscast. Many have dreamt of singing songs from musicals that no one would ever cast them in, but with this show, such dreams come true. Songs You’d Never Sing offers bold permissions for simply having some fun. It can be campy and outrageous at times, but it may also be downright beautiful and astonishing, especially when the chemistry between singer and song proves to be perfect. Perhaps you have a song like this in you?
