Ballet West presents Carmina Burana with Serenade

 

In 1974, Willam Christensen shocked and excited audiences by presenting the Utah premiere of Carmina Burana, and it quickly grew into one of Ballet West’s most popular ballets. Now, Sklute brings you a brand new version of this powerful dance theater work. Created by Resident Choreographer, Nicolo Fonte, this world premiere is a co-production with Cincinnati Ballet. Carmina Burana will surge with transformative power and drama when an immense chorus joins the dancers on-stage singing Carl Orff’s unforgettable score. The program will open with Serenade, a piece of ethereal beauty that spotlights the artistic craft and genius of George Balanchine, performed to Tchaikovsky’s lush and moving Serenade for Strings.

 

Adam Sklute

“Our resident choreographer, Nicolo Fonte, has an amazing gift for taking well-known pieces of music and illuminating them with his exciting and unexpected vision. From Bolero to The Rite of Spring, he has thrilled audiences with his unique and dynamic approach. Pairing Carmina Burana with George Balanchine’s elegant, windswept Serenade is to me, the perfect way to open my 10th anniversary season.”
—Adam Sklute
