Join us as we journey together into uncharted territories, conquering new dimensions of dance in this annual mixed bill featuring a variety of spectacular creations in one production.
In our debut year of Alberta Ballet Unleashed, we are excited to present Petal, created by world renowned choreographer Helen Pickett.
The debut year for Alberta Ballet Unleashed will also feature a world premiere by Montreal’s Anne Plamondon, a formidable dancer who has worked with some of the world’s best choreographers including our own Jean Grand-Maître and Crystal Pite in A Picture of You Falling, which earned an Olivier Award in 2015. Anne made her debut as a choreographer in 2012 with the solo The Same Eyes as Yours.
The third ballet is legendary George Balanchine’s masterpiece Allegro Brillante, featuring Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.3, his last composition before he died. Balanchine created this ballet in 1956 at the last minute to fill a gap in a program after another piece was cancelled, but it turned out to be a smashing success. It’s still performed regularly by hundreds of ballet companies worldwide, including New York City Ballet, which Balanchine founded in 1948. Balanchine said of Allegro Brillante “It features contrasting sections of fastpaced steps and slower lyrical movements, containing everything I know about classical ballet in one piece.
Don’t miss Alberta Ballet dancers as they perform three masterful works for this debut of our annual mixed bill dance series, Alberta Ballet Unleashed.
