CARMINA BURANA, with Colorado Ballet & the Evans Choir

 —  —

Ellie Caulkins Opera House, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, 1385 Curtis Street, Denver

Janine sings with the EC in Colorado Ballet's production of Carl Orff's masterful CARMINA BURANA. Also on the program, George Balanchine's exquisite SERENADE, set to Tchaikovsky's "Serenade for Strings." I cannot recommend this performance highly enough - CARMINA is lively, powerful and very fun, while the rarely performed SERENADE is an absolutely breathtaking ballet. Colorado Ballet remains one of the best ballet companies in America, and this not-to-be-missed double bill is worth the splurge. Hope you can join us at one of the 8 performances!
