For the final show in our 2017/2018 Dance Series, the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society is proud to present Ballet Kelowna's A Streetcar Named Desire, on Friday, May 4 at 7:30 pm.
Ride along with Ballet Kelowna's jazz-fueled presentation of A Streetcar Named Desire. Based on the well-known play by Tennessee Williams, made more famous by the 1951 Marlon Brando movie of the same name, Ballet Kelowna brings all the same grit and scintillation to the stage. Following Old Southern belle Blanche Dubois as she navigates through her tragic life of deceit, romance, and urban betrayal, A Streetcar Named Desire brings characters to life through movement and sensual storytelling.
Celebrates its 15th anniversary, Ballet Kelowna presents its first full-length ballet. Choreographed by the renowned John Alleyne, A Streetcar Named Desire features an exclusive expanded ensemble displaying compelling dance, superb acting, lavish costumes and an original jazz score by BC-based composer Tobin Stokes. Dubbed "an impressive achievement" by the Globe and Mail, this production is intensely passionate and intoxicating.
Transport yourself into New Orleans for a night of intrigue, sultry jazz tunes, and high-caliber dramatic flair in A Streetcar Named Desire.
