Colorado Ballet aims to entertain
Only one performing arts company has been “lifting you out of the every day,” since 1953.
Colorado Ballet is Colorado’s most elite professional ballet company. They artfully demonstrate the magic of ballet through four productions per year.
To start off this season, they staged “Giselle,” a classic ballet featuring a peasant love story and a girl gone mad. Ghost-like willies are also prominently featured in the ballet, making it perfect for its October run in the Halloween season.
Their next ballet will be the holiday favorite “Nutcracker” running from November 30 to December 28. With 25 performances, “Nutcracker” is the company’s longest running show of the season. Its annual production draws in a larger audience interested in getting into the holiday spirit.
In February, another well-known story will come to the stage with CB’s production of “Cinderella.” Running from February 14 through 23, its romantic themes make it perfect for the Valentine’s Day season.
These three more classical productions are performed at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
Colorado Ballet will close out their season with Ballet Director’s Choice, a more contemporary show consisting of three separate ballets. Its four performances will take place from March 28-30 at Newman Center for the Performing Arts, with an encore production on April 5 at Lone Tree Arts Center.
