Colorado Ballet will present Ballet MasterWorks, February 20-March 1, 2015 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Don’t miss this collection of works from the masters of music and dance showcasing our dancers’ artistry and athleticism and powerful live music performed by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra. Ballet MasterWorks includes Concerto Barocco, by choreographer George Balanchine and music by Johann Sebastian Bach; Fancy Free, choreographed by Jerome Robbins with original score composed for the ballet by Leonard Bernstein; and the triumphant return of the extremely popular In Pieces, choreographed by Val Caniparoli with music by Poul Ruders.
Colorado Ballet received rave reviews by audiences and critics alike when it first performed a Ballet MasterWorks production in 2013. According to Artistic Director Gil Boggs, "When we performed the first Ballet MasterWorks to works by Balanchine, Val Caniparoli and Glen Tetley in spring 2013, we really pushed our dancers and musicians. Our performers have tremendous talent and that is why it was so important to me to present another collection of challenging works like this again. You don’t need to go to New York or San Francisco to see ballet of this caliber, you can see it right here in Denver with Colorado Ballet."
