Ballet Idaho provides important artistic opportunities and experiences that greatly enrich the creative vitality of the Idaho community.
Returning to the SPEC theater for the intimacy it provides, Anthology will showcase the incredible range of Ballet Idaho artists in three distinct dances. Associate Artistic Director Anne Mueller and Artistic Director Garrett Anderson will co-choreograph a new work for the company, exploring composition and celebrating the dancers’ balletic virtues. James Kudelka’s Man In Black, set to the soulful late music of Johnny Cash, is a masterpiece of form, shaded with emotional nuance and the gravitas of Cash’s lyrics. Closing the evening is Alejandro Cerrudo’s Extremely Close, a gorgeous study of contemporary movement and theatrical sleight of hand set to the music of Phillip Glass.
This program will offer a chilling and captivating evening of dance just before Halloween. A new work by Penny Saunders will delight audiences as it weaves together movement, character, and narrative in the style of radio dramas from the 1930s and 40s.
Celebrate the joy of the season in glittering fashion with this beloved holiday classic. Enjoy the playful charm of the mice, the magical transformation of The Nutcracker Prince, and the dreamlike adventure that takes Clara to The Land of Sweets.
