Romeo and Juliet combines choreography by Derek Deane with music by Sergei Prokofier to tell this timeless love story. It will include extraordinary dancing to show character relationships and a wonderful music arrangement to substitute for Shakespeare’s poetry. The ballet will include everything audiences have come to expect, from the star-crossed lovers’ final moments to the famous balcony scene.

March 30 - April 1
This sequence of shows will feature three ballets: Pillar of Fire, A Brief Fling and a third work that is still to be announced.

The ever-popular Pillar of Fire is the story of a woman named Hagar who so desperately wishes she could find love. The man she wants to be with is swept away by her sister and Hagar finds herself upset and with another man. In the end, love trumps all and the man she wanted all along accepts her for her flaws and gives her the love she wanted all along. The ballet features original choreography by Antony Tudor with music by Arnold Schoenberg. Colorado Ballet is the second company to ever perform this work.

A Brief Fling is choreographed by Twyla Tharp with music by Michael Colombier. The ballet will highlight what these amazing dancers can do and will challenge them with classic choreography. It will showcase different styles of costumes, storytelling and dance. This ballet will appeal to many audiences from die-hard dance fans to people new to the world-class dance that Colorado Ballet presents in every performance.

Programming is subject to change and shows can be added, postponed or canceled.
