Tulsa Ballet presents a truly eclectic contemporary ballet sampler featuring highly acclaimed works by three of Europe’s most esteemed choreographers. See this incredible program right here in Tulsa before Tulsa Ballet takes it on tour to Italy! Learn more about our fourth international tour.
The program includes:
- Classical Symphony | Yuri Possokhov | Watch Video
- Petite Mort | Jiří Kylián | Watch Video
- Rooster | Christopher Bruce | Watch Video
Classical Symphony is an exuberant celebration of ballet and movement, set to a thrilling score by Prokofiev. In the humorous Petite Mort, dancers partner with stubborn fencing foils and ball gowns that have a life of their own. Rooster, set to music by The Rolling Stones, will have you dancing along in your seat as the Company masters that signature Mick Jagger strut.
