Ballet BC closes its 2014/15 season with RITE, May 7-9 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. This program features two World Premieres, each inspired by The Rite of Spring. Ballet BC's Artistic Director Emily Molnar collaborates with Omer Arbel, internationally renowned designer and Creative Director of Bocci, and musician Jeremy Schmidt of Black Mountain, to create an otherworldly homage to The Rite of Spring. Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramirez Sansano sets his full-company work to Igor Stravinsky's complete orchestral score, taking a 21st century perspective that explore "...universal awakening."
RITE runs for three performances, May 7-9 at 8:00pm at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
