Ballet Kelowna: A Streetcar Named Desire
Featuring Ballet Kelowna with emerging artists from the Victoria Academy of Ballet.
Choreography: John Alleyne
Music: Tobin Stokes
In celebration of Ballet Kelowna’s 15th anniversary season, the Company presents its first full-length ballet – A Streetcar Named Desire, by renowned Canadian choreographer John Alleyne.
Adapted from Tennessee Williams’ 1947 Pulitzer Prize winning drama, Alleyne’s Streetcar combines compelling dance with superb acting, lavish costumes, and an original jazz score by BC-based composer Tobin Stokes.
Drawing on the complexities of Williams’ play, this production of Streetcar explores themes of vitality and fragility and the struggle between the dying aristocracy and the working class.
“An impressive achievement.” ~ Globe and Mail
