Esmeralda and the Hunchback

What an exciting program to kick off the 2016-17 Season. A fascinating blend of dramatic, classical and contemporary ballets by choreographers at the top of their game.

Esmeralda and the Hunchback – San Diego Premiere

Inspired by Victor Hugo’s beloved classic novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the nationally recognized chorographer Mark Schneider has created a colorful, dramatic and poignant ballet that explores different aspects of love and obsession to music by Sergei Rachmaninoff. This ballet will enthrall the whole family.

Raymonda Variations

Never before staged at the Spreckels Theatre, Raymonda Variations by Resident Choreographer Elizabeth Wistrich and music by Alexander Glazunov, is fashioned as a classical ballet show-stopper to highlight the elegance, technique and artistry of the company dancers with opulent costumes and crystal chandeliers.

Bowed Piano – World Premiere

An innovative, highly original contemporary piece by Resident Choreographer Elizabeth Wistrich will show a striking interplay between movement and music using the inner workings of the piano producing startling sounds and thought provoking images.

Treatment – World Premiere

An intimate look inside troubled minds. Resident Choreographer Geoff Gonzalez explores the lives of performers and how they cope with heartache and tragedy while they pursue their artistic goals. Featuring an all-female cast, this moving ballet will focus on what dance means to dancers and how it defines them and helps them survive the often unpredictable obstacles that life sometimes sends their way.
