Where else can the classical ballet language lead? See three short ballets that express how this art form is evolving and thriving.

Written and Forgotten
Choreography: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa
Music: Various artists
A humorous, sometimes poignant look at childhood memories, through the lens of internationally celebrated choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.

The Bridge
Choreography: Val Caniparoli
Music: Dmitri Shostakovich
“…the work seems more powerful now than in 1998, when it was made in tribute to the media-created ‘Romeo and Juliet of Sarajevo.’……Like the Shostakovich string quartet it’s set to, the piece is relentlessly somber, but within the darkness skeins of deep color swirl.” Seattle Weekly, March 22, 2006 – Roger Downey

Elpis
A world premiere by Artistic Director Amy Seiwert, with live music composed and performed by violist Christen Lien.
Lien has constructed a concept album exploring the Greek myth of Elpis. The personification of Hope, Elpis is one of the evils created by Zeus to punish humanity. Because Elpis was the heaviest, most grievous evil, she was ordered to be the last to leave Pandora’s Box. But soon after Pandora opened the lid and the evils began to fly out, Pandora knew she made a mistake and quickly put the lid back on just when Elpis was trying to leave. In consequence, Elpis became trapped, where she has been imprisoned for thousands of years.

Since 1954, Sacramento Ballet has been Sacramento’s premier professional ballet company dedicated to bringing classical and contemporary performances of the highest quality to the Sacramento region.
