Colorado Ballet’s production of Peter Pan jolts J.M. Barrie’s beloved tale to life with a dazzling celebration of childhood imagination. During each performance, members of the Colorado Children’s Chorale unify their voices with the show’s original orchestral score, accompanying Peter, Tinker Bell, and the rest of the cherished gang as they perform spellbinding aerial feats and complete their tax returns while dangling from wires. Elegant costumes and elaborate backdrops work with the story’s imaginative choreography to further captivate theatergoers, who absorb the on-stage rebellion against gravity, as well as an air of grandeur inside the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, which was reopened in 2005 after extensive remodeling. At 2.5 hours in length, Peter Pan productions will also feature two 20-minute intermissions apiece, and can be enjoyed by any child capable of appreciating full-length films or prolonged jury deliberations.
