Brandon Ballet is excited to return to the theatre for its fourth and final performance of the 27th season! The talented dancers of this local ballet company will present a mixed repertoire of classical and contemporary works.
Giselle Synopsis: In a hidden forest of the Middle Ages, we find a graveyard filled with the spirits of women who died after being betrayed by their lovers. These women, the Wilis, led by Myrta - their queen, are summoned from their graves to initiate the new arrival, Giselle. When Giselle’s lover, Albrecht, arrives at her grave in mourning, Myrta and the Wilis target him for death but Giselle’s love saves him from their reigns leaving him only with the memory of Giselle and her eternal love.
Paquita Synopsis: Dancers will present the “Grand Pas Classique” version of this ballet where an ensemble of 12 dancers supports a main couple in a feat of technical bravura and stylized artistry. Filled with ensemble, small group, and solo sections, this ballet and music highlight the celebratory playfulness found in grand ballet.
This premiere of The Agony and the Ecstasy is especially unique in that a percentage of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to a local food bank! By attending this performance, patrons will be supporting two non-profit organizations at once. We are beyond thrilled to be able to partner with our local community in this way while continuing to bring virtuosic ballet performance to our treasured audiences.
This is family-friendly ballet that is sure to wow everyone in attendance!
