Ballet Ariel presents American in Paris

Ballet Ariel presents American in Paris
April 23 and 24

Experience springtime in Paris, Ballet Ariel style with three extraordinary ballets, including a new ballet to Gershwin's "An American in Paris," Norton's "Tale of Molly Brown," and the classical ballet "Konservatoriet" by Danish choreographer and ballet master August Bournonville.

Tickets are $28. Some discounts are available.
Ballet Ariel professional company’s newest premier ballet is set to Gershwin’s orchestral classic “An American in Paris”. As a composition written to evoke the streets of Paris, this “rhapsodic ballet” is the perfect match for Ballet Ariel's choreographers' gift of creating narrative ballets. A young American woman traveling to Paris for the first time is transformed by the magic and vibrancy of this magnificent city steeped in history and enveloped in romance.

No other woman in history embraced the indomitable spirit of Colorado more than Margaret "Molly" Brown. Ballet Ariel's original ballet, “Tale of Molly Brown” poignantly tells the story of her humble beginnings in Leadville, and her marriage to the soon-to-be fabulously wealthy JJ Brown. Drawn to Europe, Molly Brown reveled in the culture and opulence of the early twentieth century, one of these visits leading to her near-death experience on the Titanic. Director Ilena Norton ceates a powerful dramatization of her survival on a crowded lifeboat in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic that earned her the title of the "unsinkable" Molly Brown.

Rounding out the program is “Konservatoriet” (Ballet Conservatory), a classical ballet created by Danish choreographer and ballet master August Bournonville and set at the Paris Opera Ballet in the romantic period famously painted by Edgar Degas.

Best for ages 6 and up.
