After a record setting Swan Lake and almost 47,000 Denverites attending our production of Nutcracker, it's now time to go "Flying." Our company premiere of Michael Pink's latest creation, Peter Pan is opening Fri Feb 24th and you have got to see this! New choreography, sets, costumes and a truly magical original score by Phillip Feeny is your ticket to Neverland.
When I first saw this production in Milwaukee, I was entranced to say the least. It wasn't hard to realize how much Denver audiences, both young and old, would enjoy this ballet. The flying scenes are spectacular, the story is straight out of the book, and with our own Colorado Ballet Orchestra in the pit along with singing by the Colorado Children's Chorale, this is going to be one of CB's best productions to date.
And maybe the best part is you, the audience, are called upon to participate in a very important moment in the ballet. I won't tell what it is, but I guarantee it will bring a tear to your eye...
