Colorado Ballet announced the full 2018/2019 season today, and there is plenty to look forward too, but the big news is the collaboration featuring Colorado Ballet Alongside Colorado’s Own Wonderbound and Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Companies with four performances at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House March 8-10, 2019! Full Season Schedule
Speaking about this innovative collaboration, Artistic Director Gil Boggs states,
“We are delighted and honored to announce that we have partnered with these two respected ballet companies to bring a new work into existence, and onto the stage of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, performed by Colorado Ballet’s own dancers with live music by Matthew Pierce performed by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra. Today, performing arts companies are exploring creative ways to produce new and grand productions on limited budgets, and this collaboration gives all three companies a way to create something new and much larger than any of us would have been able to produce independently.”
This collaborative program will showcase a contemporary work performed by Colorado Ballet, a new work choreographed by Wonderbound Artistic Director Garrett Ammon starring Colorado Ballet and Wonderbound dancers, and a new work choreographed by Artistic Director Cleo Parker Robinson featuring Colorado Ballet and Cleo Parker Robinson Dancers. This vibrant and innovative program will celebrate dance in Colorado and the incredible way that the art of dance can create joy and inspiration.
