The world premiere of the Elpis Ballet is May 16th - 19th with the Sacramento Ballet, and it's time to purchase tickets and plan your trip to see this beautiful production based on my mythological story and album ELPIS!
A month after I released the album, acclaimed choreographer Amy Seiwert approached me to turn this project into a ballet, and invited me to perform the music on stage live with the ballerinas at my side. We workshopped the ballet last summer in San Francisco with her company Amy Seiwert's Imagery ( @asimagery ), to help us prepare for this world premiere in May.
With Amy's new post as the Artistic Director of the @sacballet , we are excited to showcase ELPIS with their 22 extraordinary dancers as part of the 'Fast Forward' program. The evening will showcase three ballets that are proving where else the classical ballet language can lead and how this art form is evolving and thriving.
