In 1974, Willam Christensen shocked and excited audiences by presenting the Utah premiere of Carmina Burana, and it quickly grew into one of Ballet West’s most popular ballets. Now, Artistic Director Adam Sklute brings you a brand new version of this powerful dance theater work. Created by Resident Choreographer, Nicolo Fonte, this world premiere is a co-production with Cincinnati Ballet. Carmina Burana will surge with transformative power and drama when an immense chorus joins the dancers on-stage singing Carl Orff’s unforgettable score.
KUER’s RadioWest Films has captured the beauty and skill of the ballet’s beautiful and challenging pas de deux with principal artists Beckanne Sisk and Chase O’Connell. Click here to watch the short film https://films.radiowest.org/film/that-one-moment-with-ballet-wests-carmina-burana.
