MAMBO and Other Works

The MAMBO mixed program features three works by BC-based choreographers commissioned by Ballet Kelowna.

 1723 – Vivaldi
Wen Wei Wang’s
dynamic work 1723 – Vivaldi, commissioned for Ballet Kelowna’s 15th anniversary season in 2017, is a mesmerizing sextet featuring gorgeous partnering, extreme extensions, and complex pointe work for the women.

Cuatro Estaciones
Cuatro Estaciones
is an evocative tango-inspired ensemble piece by Ballet Kelowna’s visionary Artistic Director and CEO Simone Orlando, set to virtuoso composer Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

The program culminates with Alysa Pires’ wildly popular MAMBO. MAMBO gained worldwide acclaim after performances at Beijing’s China International Performing Arts Expo and Toronto’s FFDN Festival in 2018. Pires’ “crowd-pleasing MAMBO” (The Globe and Mail), is a colourful joie de vivre set to a vibrant soundtrack of Latin, swing, and jazz standards by musical legends such as Dean Martin, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughn, and more.
