My life was enriched and inspired by delicate and awe-inspiring dances—the athleticism, art, and acting of everyone in the company is much admired. Sadly, there were many empty seats in the audience; how unfortunate for people to miss out on such an extraordinary evening. With the stellar line-up and nationally acclaimed "Breaking Pointe" that debuted on the CW network May-July 2012 I guess I expected a few more fans.
Dear reader, I hope you will support Ballet West and see one, or many, of the upcoming spectacular shows. "The Nutcracker" (Nov. 30-Dec. 29, 2012) is a holiday tradition; "Cinderella" (Feb. 14-17 & 20-23, 2013) will sweep you off your feet; "Jewels" (April 5, 6 & 10-13, 2013) is another triple charmer; and "Innovations 2013" (May 17, 18 & 22-25, 2013) will delight in its, well, innovation.
Performances at Ballet West have been part of my event calendar since I was a child. Favorites were (and still are) classics such as Giselle and Swan Lake. Traditional ballerina costumes and symphonies from the great masters will always entice me back to Capitol Theatre. However, as I have become older (and wiser) I have gained greater appreciation and respect for contemporary choreography, staging, and music—Ballet West Artistic Director Adam Sklute and his outstanding troupe of dancers create absolute magic on the stage.
Whether it's a night out with friends, a romantic soiree, or fun for the entire family, an evening with Ballet West will enchant and entertain. For tickets and more information visit balletwest.org.
