Giselle

October 31-November 3, 2019

Giselle, an innocent peasant girl, has her heart fatally broken when she discovers the man she fell in love with is the disguised Duke Albrecht, who is betrothed to another. As moonlight settles on Giselle’s grave she is summoned by Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis. These female spirits, all abandoned before their wedding day, rise from their graves at night to seek revenge upon men by dancing them to death. Giselle must decide to either join the Wilis in their eternal search for vengeance, or allow her love to forgive Albrecht. Eerie and tragically romantic, this masterwork ballet was instantly popular when it debuted in 1841, and continues to be one of the most often performed classical ballets in the world.

Signature Series

May 7-10, 2020

Effervescent audience favorites combined with a brand new work commissioned for the company make for an unforgettable evening of contemporary dance handpicked by Artistic Director Marcello Angelini.

Glass Figures | Ma Cong
Created for the company in 2018, this purely abstract work is a tribute to the joy of dance. Loved by audiences in both Tulsa and New York City, critics said moments of the work were “so startling and poignant that they rearrange your heartbeat.” (Tulsa World)

O Balcão de Amour | Itzik Galili
A quirky tribute to the culture of Cuba that will have you tapping your toes and laughing out loud. With energetic music and characters that perfectly embody comedy and sexiness, you’ll love the lighthearted absurdity enfolding on stage.

World Premiere | Penny Saunders
After the success of the touching piece she recently created for TBII, Ms. Saunders returns to Tulsa to create a new work for company. A 2016 recipient of the Princess Grace Award and Resident Choreographer for the Grand Rapids Ballet, The New York Times has distinguished her as having “a remarkably fresh mind, with talents for suspense and surrealism.”
