Peninsula Ballet Theatre’s artistic director Bruce Steivel brings Sir J. M. Barrie's timeless tale to life with aerial effects, sumptuous set pieces, and a talented pack of local and international dancers. Set to the original score by Thomas Semanski, Peter Pan features pirates, pixies, mermaid, and whimsical characters as they spin, chassé, and take to the sky in a dizzying display of airborne acrobatics. Featuring Nathan Cottam as Captain Hook, this Northern California premiere will leave audiences wishing they could fly, or at least levitate two feet above the ground whenever they play basketball.
Ten Yelpers give the Peninsula Ballet Theatre a 3.5-star average rating.
