Bolero, The Lottery, But Never Doubt I Love

 

 

November 2, 3 & 7-10, 2012

“Perhaps the most powerful theatrical experience Ballet West has ever offered.” 
                                                                                – Adam Sklute 

Based on Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery* – one of the most famous short stories in American literature – this world premiere by former Ballet West resident choreographer Val Caniparoli tells the story of a quiet American town with a startling and frightening secret.  Commissioned exclusively by Ballet West and set to a new musical score by Robert Moran, The Lottery* promises to be both fascinating and terrifying. It will also be a groundbreaking dancer/audience interactive experience, with the audience finding out the secret before the dancers – not to be missed!   This exciting triple-bill also includes the return of Nicolo Fonte’s critically acclaimed Bolero to music by Maurice Ravel.  Rounding out the program is the revival and reworking of Helen Pickett’s But Never Doubt I Love. Set to music by Felix Mendelssohn and Franz Liszt, and originally choreographed on Ballet West dancers for the company’s 2010 Innovations program, this touching work is at once sleek and “New Age” in look but profoundly romantic and emotional in feel.
