Top choreographers, world premiere pieces, National Ballet of Canada dancers, and an internationally acclaimed musical ensemble join forces with Ballet Kelowna and the Frank Venables Theatre for a special world premiere performance entitled Renaissance.
Oliver’s Frank Venables Theatre was chosen as one of only three in BC to premiere this exciting performance. “This is a wonderful tribute to Oliver whose support for the theatre has made opportunities like this possible”, says Bettyanne Hampton, Theatre Manager. ‘Ballet Kelowna and their guest artists are looking forward to bringing this visually and emotionally commanding performance to our South Okanagan audiences.’
Renaissance is a collaboration between Ballet Kelowna and Toronto’s Continuum Contemporary Music that will showcase some of Canada’s finest choreographers, dancers, musicians and composers. Two rising stars from The National Ballet of Canada, Hannah Fischer and Ethan Watts, will make a special guest appearance to perform a new duet by National Ballet’s Choreographic Associate Robert Binet.
Any one of these performances on their own is a strong draw. To see Ballet Kelowna, Continuum and National Ballet dancers together in one program is exceptional and we encourage our dance community, our music community and all those who enjoy live performance to come to this special premiere presentation.
