Ballet West's The Wedding

Ballet West's The Wedding runs April 14-22! Tickets here: https://balletwest.org/events/thewedding Three stunning Ballet West premieres! This 100th-anniversary production of Nijinska’s Les Noces is paired with an ode to the stages of love in Jerome Robbins’ In the Night and Gerald Arpino’s Light Rain, a sparkling tribute to youth. Les Noces, or The Wedding, is a rarely-performed, Diaghilev-era gem. The groundbreaking work, created in 1923 by a woman choreographer and woman designer, is set to a breathtaking and complex Stravinsky score, using a 40-member chorus, four soloists, four grand pianos, and percussion. Jerome Robbins explores the phases of relationships in his In the Night. Three couples present themes of harmony, passion, and naïve young love to Chopin’s Nocturnes for solo piano.

A fusion of eastern and western music is the backdrop to Gerald Arpino’s dynamic ode to youth and all its passions.
