an Extraordinary Evening of Dance


Award winning emerging dancers from the Orange County area are showcased in an exhilarating evening of diverse works that push the boundaries of ballet. This special evening of dance features Opéra-ballets from Glinka’s Ruslan and Lyudmilla and Gounod’s Faust.

Guest artists from Houston Ballet will perform a pas de deux from Stanton Welch’s opera-inspired ballet, Madame Butterfly.

Three exciting new contemporary works created for OCBT by internationally acclaimed choreographer Terence Marling and southern California’s own Jessie Riley and Megan Guise round out the program.
