Ballet Idaho presents Sinatra and More

Friday, February 19 at 8 pm
Saturday, February 20 at 8 pm

Join us for a stunning repertory! Enjoy the Idaho premiere of a Twyla Tharp ballet, her spectacular Nine Sinatra Songs. In addition, that program will have another George Balanchine ballet, Valse Fantasie, a little gem, Peter Anastos' jazz‐inspired

Ravel Piano Concerto and Alex Ossadnik’s contemporary Scheherezade, returning by popular demand.

**Nine Sinatra Songs**

Music by Frank Sinatra
Choreography by Twyla Tharp
Costumes by Oscar de la Renta
Nine Sinatra Songs presents a glamorous portrait of seven couples that traces the arc of romantic relationships. The dancers swing, swirl, tango and cha-cha through a glittering ballroom. This is the first time ever that a Twyla Tharp ballet will be performed in Idaho.

**Valse Fantasie**

Music by Mikhail Glinka
Choreography by George Balanchine © The George Balanchine Trust
In 1967, George Balanchine choreographed Glinkiana, a ballet in four movements set to the music of Mikhail Glinka—“the Russian Mozart.” The second movement, Valse Fantaisie, is the only part that Balanchine liked well enough to keep in the repertory. The choreography presents a windswept pattern of pure dancing, attuned to the joyfulness of its waltz rhythms.

**Ravel Piano Concerto**

Music by Maurice Ravel
Choreography by Peter Anastos
1930’s jazz-inspired Ravel Piano Concerto accompanies a fast-paced, witty and beautiful ballet – a sleek and elegant classic ballet full of energy and drive.

**Scheherezade**

Music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Choreography by Alex Ossadnik

Scheherezade, one of the glories of symphonic music, based on the 1,001 Arabian Night’s tales is back, by popular demand. After their first night, Scheherezade, who is well read in all literature, philosophy and science, offers to tell the Sultan a story. The Sultan agrees and so she begins… each night, the Sultan spares her life in order to hear another story. By the end of 1,001 nights and after Scheherezade has exhausted all her stories, the Sultan has fallen in love with her, spares her life, and makes her his queen.
