DENVER, CO (January 24, 2024) – Colorado Ballet invites members of the press to attend a special Press Night on Thursday, February 1 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House for its upcoming production of Val Caniparoli’s new ballet, Jekyll & Hyde.

Colorado Ballet’s Press Night will include a reception at 4pm and full dress rehearsal of Jekyll & Hyde at 4:30pm, complete with live music performed by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra. Members of the press will have the opportunity to take photographs during the rehearsal for media coverage of the production.

Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Gothic novella, this production explores the depths of the human psyche through its haunting narrative, powerful choreography, and evocative score performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra, featuring music from acclaimed composers Frédéric Chopin, Krzysztof Penderecki, Henryk Górecki, Wojciech Kilar, and Henryk Wieniawski.

Jekyll & Hyde unfolds against the atmospheric backdrop of Victorian London, where the eminent Dr. Jekyll grapples with the enigmatic dance between good and evil. As Dr. Jekyll seeks to unlock the mysteries of his own nature, he unleashes his malevolent alter ego, Mr. Hyde, leading to a harrowing journey of transformation and self-discovery. Learn more about Jekyll & Hyde from choreographer Val Caniparoli and Colorado Ballet Company dancers on our YouTube channel.
