An Evening Under the Stars
2018/2019 Season
An Evening Under the Stars

Join Colorado Ballet at the Arvada Center for An Evening Under the Stars. The program features ballet excerpts from classical and contemporary favorites, followed by a performance of Brief Fling by choreographer Twyla Tharp. The title references both the traditional Scottish dance and a short-lived romance. Isaac Mizrahi's tartan costumes divide the dancers into clans of blue, red, green and off-white. The score by Michel Colombier intersperses Percy Grainger’s sunny interpretations of traditional melodies from the United Kingdom with an ominous electronic score. Don’t miss this enchanting evening filled with beautiful music and dancing, starring Colorado Ballet.
