Midwinter Dances
February 5, 2020 - February 9, 2020
Midwinter Dances

Featuring a newly commissioned work for the ButlerBallet.

The 2020 Midwinter Dances continues the tradition of presenting two alternating programs of spectacular dance.  Featured on all six performances will be a newly commissioned piece created expressly for the ButlerBallet.

Michael Abels, the Award winning composer of the films “Get Out” and “Us” will create a brand new score for the Butler Wind Ensemble, and internationally acclaimed choreographer, Patrick de Bana will choreograph the work for the ButlerBallet.  This new and exciting adventure will feature live performances of the new score by the Butler Wind Ensemble under the direction of Michael Colburn. The premiere of this major new piece, combining classical ballet and wind ensemble is certain to be a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience.  Don’t miss it!
