Ballet Kelowna closes its 2018/19 Season with Spring, at the Kelowna Community Theatre on May 3 & 4, 2019 at 7:30pm. This rejuvenating mixed program introduces three world premieres from a trio of esteemed Canadian female choreographers, offering refreshing takes on works by Igor Stravinsky, originally commissioned for Paris’ Ballet Russes between 1910 and 1913. 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’s singular 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. Patrons are invited to enjoy a complimentary tasting of Quails’ Gate Chasselas – Pinot Blanc – Pinot Gris. Made in a fresh, fruit forward style, this iconic white blend embodies the essence of the Spring program — heralding the arrival of the season’s growth and renewal.
