Ballet West's The Sleeping Beauty

Ballet West's The Sleeping Beauty runs February 10-18! Tickets here: The beloved fairy tale, adored by Utah audiences for decades, gets an opulent makeover with the premiere of sumptuous new sets designed by critically acclaimed French artist and painter Alain Vaes. In 2011, Ballet West Artistic Director Adam Sklute and Resident Designer David Heuvel reconceived the costumes. Now Ballet West unveils the first new sets created for this work since its BW premiere in 1986. From birth, Aurora is beset by trials—a jealous witch, cursed spindles, pernicious brambles and thorns—and the only chance for redemption for her and her kingdom is true love’s kiss. The fairy of wisdom, a loving godmother, sets out to ensure Aurora’s happiness and the kingdom’s triumph, celebrated with a wedding attended by the most fanciful fairy tale characters ever to grace the stage. Adam Sklute’s unique adaptation of the spectacular Marius Petipa ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score is an evening of nonstop, fanciful adventure.

The Two Red Books: Jung, Tolkien, & The Imaginal Realm

Join us for a fascinating exploration of the many synchronistic parallels between Jung's and Tolkien's Red Books! We are excited to bring Becca Tarnas to Salt Lake City for this timely talk, so well paired with the new Tolkien series. Featured musician: To be announced! Featured artist: Lizzie Wenger Featured poet: To be announced!

Schedule: 6:30-7:00 pm Live Music & Mingle 7:00-8:30 pm Immersive Talk with Becca 8:30-9:00 pm Community Social 1.5 CEUs available (Additional $5 / Free for Professional Members) Companion Depth Workshop on Saturday, February 11th Beginning in the years leading up to the Great War, both C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien independently began to undergo profound imaginal experiences. Jung recorded these fantasies in a large red manuscript that he named Liber Novus, referred to simply as The Red Book. For Tolkien, this imaginal journey revealed to him the world of Middle-earth, whose stories and myths eventually led to the writing of The Lord of the Rings, a book he named within its own imaginal history The Red Book of Westmarch.

This lecture explores the many synchronistic parallels between Jung's and Tolkien's Red Books: the style and content of their works of art, the narrative descriptions and scenes in their texts, the nature of their visions and dreams, and an underlying similarity in world view that emerged from their experiences. The two men seem to have been simultaneously treading parallel paths through the imaginal realm.

About Becca Tarnas, Ph.D.: Becca is a scholar, artist, and editor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology. She received her doctorate in Philosophy and Religion from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), with her dissertation titled The Back of Beyond: The Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien. Her research interests include depth psychology, archetypal studies, literature, philosophy, and the ecological imagination. She teaches at both Pacifica Graduate Institute and CIIS, and is the author of the book Journey to the Imaginal Realm: A Reader's Guide to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
