George Balanchine's Rubies (Oklahoma Premiere)
World Premiere from Matthew Neenan
Jacob Sparso's Carmen (World Premiere)

This exciting triple bill evening of dance is headlined by a new world premiere ballet Carmen. Inspired by the Prosper Mérimée novella and using the famous "ballet suite" Rodion Shchedrin arranged from the Bizet opera of the same name, Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naive soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. Ballet Master Jacob Sparso brings his unique ability to weave intricate stories into exciting choreography for this dramatic ballet.

Also on the program is the 20th century master choreographer George Balanchine's Rubies. Danced to the music of Stravinksy, which epitomizes the long-term artistic relationship between Igor Stravinksy and George Balanchine, Rubies is inspired by the work of jewelry designer Claude Arpels. Rubies reveals the spirit, color, and fundamental nature of the jewel itself.

Rounding out the performance is a world premiere from Pennsylvania Ballet resident choreographer, Matthew Neenan. Mr. Neenan has received numerous awards for his choreography including the National Endwoment of the Arts and the Choo San Goh Foundation. His work has been featured by the Pennsylvania Ballet, BalletX, The Washington Ballet, Colorado Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theatre, and New York City Ballet's Choreographic Institute.
