Ballet West fans have long anticipated the return of Carmina Burana, a fiercely passionate ballet that combines dance and vocal elements in a live performance of Carl Orff’s pulse-enhancing score. This ballet, inspired by medieval poems about various earthly pleasures, was once banned in certain European cities and on most intergalactic flights. The show will also feature a performance of George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments, a richly complex and innovative piece.
- Every dancer in every role looked motivated…the company as true ensemble. The performers were caught up in something beyond themselves, something stylistically different in each ballet. – Alastair Macaulay, New York Times
