Below this paragraph, I have quoted from a press release concerning the availability of tickets for the Colorado Ballet’s new season. I have said this often, but if you have not seen the Colorado Ballet, now is the time. They are certainly equal to any other ballet company that you will see in the United States. They have the Director, the dancers, and the orchestra, and I challenge you to find any United States ballet company who is better than ours. Another reason for attending this season is the repertoire. Giselle is beautiful, and if that weren’t enough, the Colorado Ballet is doing Prokofiev’s Cinderella. The music for this ballet is incredible, and there are moments when you will be laughing. In addition, the Colorado Ballet’s own Sandra Brown will have a new work of hers premiered in March 2014. Please carefully read the schedule below and make arrangements to see everything that is on next season’s program. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Tickets went on sale today for Colorado Ballet’s 53rd season and the four-production lineup will feature classical works including Giselle, The Nutcracker and Cinderella at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. The season concludes with Ballet Director’s Choice, which includes three contemporary ballets at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts.
Colorado Ballet opens the season with the hauntingly beautiful classical ballet Giselle, October 4-13, 2013 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Giselle will take the audience on a journey of love, betrayal, death and forgiveness, with live music performed by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.
KeyBank presents the holiday classic The Nutcracker, November 30 through December 28, 2013 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. The Nutcracker features unforgettable characters, dazzling costumes, classic choreography and Tchaikovsky’s extraordinary arrangement performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra. This dazzling spectacle of glittering snowflakes and shimmering sugarplums will transport audiences to the Land of Sweets.
In the spring, PwC will present the classic fairy tale Cinderella, February 14-23, 2014 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. This well-known tale sprinkled with humor that demonstrates dreams can come true, especially with the help of a fairy godmother. Cinderella features an enchanting score by Prokofiev, performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.
Colorado Ballet will close out the season with Ballet Director’s Choice, March 28-30, 2014 at Newman Center for the Performing Arts. This production will include Traveling Alone, choreographed by Amy Seiwert; Edwaard Liang’s Feast of the Gods; and a world premiere choreographed by Sandra Brown.
