February Program

Elton John and More

Join us for an extraordinary repertory of three spectacular ballets, representing the classical to contemporary, on one program for a phenomenal evening of culture and dance.

Madmen Across the Water

Music by Elton John
Choreography by Daniel Ojeda
Costumes by Heather Schwabe and Nancy Zurcher
Lighting by Tony Hartshorn
Special thanks to In Retrospect

Commissioned especially for Ballet Idaho, a break-through piece by Daniel Ojeda, it’s sure to set the stage alight!

Agon

Music by Igor Stravinsky
Choreography by George Balanchine © The George Balanchine Trust
Staged by Paul Boos
Costumes by Keri Fitch
Lighting by Tony Hartshorn

One of Balanchine’s finest and most celebrated works. A landmark in modern ballet and music. Agon is the Greek word for contest and the ballet is courtly, intense, and technically demanding.

Raymonda’s Wedding

Music by Alexander Glazunov
Choreography by Peter Anastos, after Petipa and Nureyev
Costumes by Mark Zappone
Costumes courtesy of Oregon Ballet Theatre: Kevin Irving, Artistic Director
Scenery by Keith Hazen-Diehm
Lighting by Tony Hartshorn

A brilliant tour de force for our dancers with technically challenging solos and a fabulous Hungarian folk-dance style finale.
