Ballet Tucson - 2017 Opening Night Gala
For the Opening Night Gala of Ballet Tucson's 2017-2018 season, Founding Artistic Director Mary Beth Cabana has selected an exciting triple bill of works:
Walpurgisnacht Ballet (Ballet Tucson premiere) - Ballet Tucson offers its 2nd work by the immortal genius and foremost dance maker of the 20th century, George Balanchine. This enduring ballet is a joyous revelry set to excerpts from Gounod's "Faust."
Phantom of the Opera - Murder and mayhem are the order of the day at the Paris Opera in Ballet Tucson's wildly popular, original work-loosely based on the 1925 silent film; choreography by Chieko Imada, Mary Beth Cabana, and Daniel Precup.
