Macbeth
World Premiere
Choreography
: Alysa Pires
Music: Adam Sakiyama
Visual Design: Jane Everett

Our season culminates with Ballet Kelowna’s first commissioned full-length ballet, Macbeth, by Canadian dance luminary Alysa Pires.

With its themes of ambition, power, and corruption, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is more relevant than ever. Pires lends her signature athleticism and theatricality to this contemporary adaptation of the iconic tragedy exploring the dark side of human nature.

An original score of toil and trouble by Canadian composer Adam Sakiyama and stunning visuals by Okanagan artist Jane Everett set the scene for this exploration of psychological decay.

 Don’t miss this milestone dance event of the decade!
