Join us for another weekend of live streams on Friday, April 17th at 7:00 pm (CST) and Saturday, April 18th at 12:00 pm (CST). Watch on Tulsa Ballet’s YouTube channel (wherever YouTube U.S. is available) from the comfort of your couch (or bed…we don’t judge).
For one weekend only, we will be streaming Classical Symphony by Ukraine-native Yuri Possokhov, a former dancer and choreographer at San Francisco Ballet. Classical Symphony is an exuberant celebration of ballet and movement, dedicated to Possokhov’s most beloved ballet teacher, Peter Pestov. Set to a thrilling score by Prokofiev, this piece uses neoclassical influences to illustrate the choreographer’s childhood memories and reverence for traditional ballet.
We couldn’t just leave you with one ballet now, could we? After a short intermission (just enough time for a bathroom break and drink refresher), we will be streaming Remember Our Song, a piece by Andy Blankenbuehler, which Tulsa World called, “…a compelling piece of dance theater, at once brutal and beautiful.” The three-time Tony Award-winning choreographer of Broadway’s Hamilton came to Tulsa just last year 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 are so excited to bring it back (virtually, of course).
These streams will only be available for viewing while they’re live during their time slots, so be sure to follow us on all of our social media handles to keep up to date when we go live. Artistic Director Marcello Angelini will be available for questions during the April 17th performance via the stream live chat.
