An Evening at the Ballet
An Evening at the Ballet is a new symphonic program like no other -- and it's ready to go!
Artistic Directors Mireille Favarel and Ronald Foster have assembled a moving and exhilarating program of ballet music from the world's greatest composers. An Evening at the Ballet features two of today's most exciting dancers, Joffrey Ballet's Yumelia Garcia and Ogulcan Borova.
Each half begins with your orchestra performing brilliant works from the ballet repertoire. Garcia and Borova then dance a breathtaking pas de deux with the orchestra, followed by a rousing orchestral finale. Orchestra musicians will love An Evening at the Ballet. Our program includes inspiring and challenging masterworks that showcase the artistry of your orchestra, as much as the dancers.
The synergy between dancers, conductor, and orchestra makes for a rehearsal and experience that is thrilling and engaging for all. We create a magnificent evening for your audience.
