Creations in Studio K

Create, Collaborate, Celebrate

September 14-23, 2018

For the past twelve years, Creations in Studio K has been dedicated to furthering innovation in dance by commissioning new works from world renowned choreographers. Our annual Creations program will be extra special this season as Tulsa audiences will enjoy the first major collaboration between Tulsa Ballet and the Philbrook Museum of Art. Featuring new choreography by Resident Choreographer Ma Cong, an all-new musical score by Ryan Lott commissioned by Philbrook, and original artwork created just for this ballet, this promises to be a groundbreaking event.

Creations in Studio K will also feature the reprisal of Alejandro Cerrudo’s Second to Last. Cerrudo’s work, commissioned for a past Creations series, was selected through our newly implemented Dancer’s Choice program, which empowers the company dancers to participate in the artistic selection of choreography in order to share with you their favorite works. Watch the video below for an inside look at the creation of this work.

This triple-bill evening of dance will conclude with an exciting World Premiere by in-demand dance-maker Jennifer Archibald, Resident Choreographer for Cincinnati Ballet.

Tchaikovsky

The Man Behind the Music

March 29-31, 2019

Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is the creator of the iconic music for some of the most beloved ballets in history. Audience favorites include the beautiful melodies found in The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake, among others.

While Tchaikovsky was celebrated for his professional success and popularity, the societal constraints of life in 19th century Russia created constant inner conflict between his private life and the public persona society required of him. This World Premiere delves into the complicated personal life of this acclaimed musician and features a stellar creative team that includes composer Oliver Peter Graber (Dorothy & the Prince of Oz), Russian historian Daniela Kolic, New Zealand’s top designer Tracy Grant Lord, and Resident Choreographer Ma Cong. The musical score will feature a blend of Tchaikovsky’s greatest works along with other influential composers of the time, as well as some brand new music by Oliver Peter Graber.

Signature Series

From Ballet to Broadway

May 9-12, 2019

Our season closer takes a look at choreographers that find inspiration across genres and seamlessly blend styles to create works with long lasting, widespread appeal. Classical ballet and Broadway-style dance fuse together in all three works for a joyful evening of movement.

Fancy Free | Jerome Robbins
Featuring a score by Leonard Bernstein, this short ballet (Mr. Robbins’s first!) was the inspiration for the musical On the Town. It follows three boisterous sailors on leave in 1940’s New York City as they vie for the attention of the young women they meet.

Who Cares? | George Balanchine
Described as Balanchine’s “homage to one of New York’s happiest voices, George Gershwin” (The New York Times), this joyful work remains as refreshing today as when it debuted in 1970. With the Gershwin brothers’ most popular Broadway standards fueling the rhythm, and Balanchine’s iconic style driving the dancing, you’ll love this work.

Untitled World Premiere | Andy Blankenbuehler
The three time Tony Award winning choreographer of Broadway’s Hamilton comes to Tulsa to create a brand new work inspired by Tulsa Ballet dancers – his first commission for a ballet company! Mr. Blankenbuehler is one of the most sought after choreographers on Broadway, and we can’t wait to open the curtain on this thrilling new collaboration.
