For Spring, Ballet Kelowna draws inspiration from Igor Stravinsky, one of the most influential composers of the 20th century. The program features the world premieres of three reimagined classics – The Firebird, Petrushka, and The Rite of Spring. These iconic works will re-surface through the voices of today’s top BC-based choreographers. The Spring program promises to be the dance event of the season.
Spring is paired with Quails’ Gate Chasselas - Pinot Blanc - Pinot Gris.
The lively lightness of Quails’ Gate’s Chasselas - Pinot Blanc - Pinot Gris pairs beautifully with the arrival of spring, a time of growth and renewal. This iconic white blend embodies the essence of our Spring program and celebrates the moment - the unveiling of three world premieres!
