Ballet leaps into Spring

Ballet Kelowna closes its 2018-19 season with Spring, May 3-4 at Kelowna Community Theatre.

The program introduces three world premieres from a trio of Canadian female choreographers, offering refreshing takes on works by Igor Stravinsky.

Heather Dotto’s jovially abstract Petrushka reflects on a puppet’s desire to be human, while Amber Funk Barton’s Firebird is a dynamic examination of heroism. Rite of Spring is a powerfully raw exploration of liberation from oppression by Ballet Kelowna artistic director Simone Orlando.

The evening will conclude with the company premiere of tender-hearted Spring from one of Canada’s top emerging talents, Alysa Pires, creator of the effervescent fan-favourite MAMBO.

“With Spring, we bring our exploration of the earth’s seasons and its transcendent qualities to a triumphant end with four works that burst with vitality, strength, and vision,” says Orlando. 

Tickets are on sale now at balletkelowna.ca.
