The Firebird headlines OKC Ballet’s special performance
Last year audiences stood and cheered for Oklahoma City Ballet’s revival of Agnes de Mille’s charming ballet Rodeo. For one night only, Edmond’s Armstrong Auditorium is presenting area audiences another opportunity to see this classic of American ballet as we get the Cowgirl and The Champion Roper back in the saddle again.
Headlining the program is Stravinsky’s acclaimed ballet, The Firebird, re-choreographed by Oklahoma’s own Robert Mills, artistic director for Oklahoma City Ballet.
“Oklahoma City Ballet is happy to be performing at Edmond's beautiful Armstrong Auditorium,” said OKC Ballet Artistic Director Robert Mills. “We are bringing two vastly different ballets with my Firebird and Agnes de Mille's Rodeo but each one showcases fabulous dance and wonderful stories. It will be a great performance.”
This special pre-season, one night only performance will be Thursday, September 14 at Edmond’s Armstrong Auditorium. Tickets are available through their box office. Call (405) 285-1010 or visit www.armstrongauditorium.org to purchase tickets. Armstrong Auditorium is located at 14400 S. Bryant Avenue in Edmond.
Oklahoma City Ballet’s regular season will begin in October, when the company will present Tchaikovsky’s classic tale of good versus evil, Swan Lake, on the Civic Center Music Hall stage, accompanied by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. For information, visit www.okcballet.org.
