Colorado Ballet 2 tickets to Ballet Masterworks
Two (2) tickets, A seating or Lower valid through 3/2013
In February 2013, Colorado Ballet transitions from storybook ballets to an innovative collection of three different works. Colorado Ballet will present the Ballet MasterWorks February 22 through March 3, 2013 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Highlighting this program will be a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky’s composition of The Rite of Spring. Colorado Ballet is honored to perform this ground breaking piece of music to Glen Tetley’s ballet Le Sacre du Printemps.
Also in this program will be George Balanchine’s ballet Theme and Variations, performed to the final movement of Tchaikovsky’s Suite No. 3 for Orchestra in G major, Op. 55.
In keeping with Colorado Ballet’s commitment to new works, we are proud to bring in Val Caniparoli, choreographer for San Francisco Ballet to create a new work on the Company, with music by Poul Rouders. Caniparoli’s versatility has made him one of the most sought after American choreographers in the United States and abroad, contributing to the repertories of more than 35 dance companies. He has created a body of work that is rooted in classicism and influenced by all forms of movement.
