Peter and the Wolf audions are next week September 8th & 9th! It is a shorter ballet that is performed with a narrator, and with musical works that serve as an introduction to the instruments of the orchestra as well as the basis of a delightful ballet. Each character in the story is personified by its own instruments and melody.
We will be performing pieces of this ballet in our Educational Outreach Performances in November.
Peter is a slight lad, solitary, locked out of the woods by his protective grandfather, his only friend a duck. In town, he’s bullied. When a wolf menaces the duck – as well as grandfather’s fat cat and an ill-flying bird that Peter has befriended – Peter bravely tries to tree the wolf.
For the upcoming year, along with Peter and the Wolf, Utah Valley Civic Ballet Company will be performing A Midsummer Night’s Dream!
We will be holding open summer classes on Fridays from 3:30-5:00, starting July 14th and going through to August 18th! Bring $8 each class you come to, or pre-pay $40 for July & August. We are accepting ages 12 to adult for these open classes. We will be holding classes in the Upstairs Studio of the Orem Rec. Center.
