|November 27, 2019||In Town|
MAMBO and Other Works is a mixed program that features three works by BC-based choreographers commissioned by Ballet Kelowna.
Vivaldi: Commissioned for Ballet Kelowna’s 15th anniversary season in 201. This mesmerizing sextet features gorgeous partnering, extreme extensions, and complex pointe work for the women.
Cuatro Estaciones: An evocative tango-inspired ensemble piece by Ballet Kelowna’s visionary Artistic Director and CEO Simone Orlando set to virtuoso composer Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.
MAMBO: Alysa Pires’ ‘crowd-pleasing MAMBO’ (The Globe and Mail), is a colourful joie de vivre set to a vibrant soundtrack of Latin, Swing, and jazz standards by musical legends such as Dean Martin, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughn, and more. MAMBO gained worldwide acclaim after performances at Bejing’s China International Performing Arts Expo and Toronto’s Fall for Dance North Festival in 2018.
