Music: Coppélia, ou La Fille aux Yeux d’émail
Choreography: Marius Petipa
Considered one of the best-loved classical ballets, this charming, lighthearted, romantic comedy staged by Artistic Director, Lauren Jonas, and Broadway choreographer, Sean Kelly, features a brash young protagonist, a doll that comes to life, and a dash of magic. Diablo Ballet will present the wedding celebration which features the wedding pas de deux, variations and coda, and the divertisments which include Dawn, Prayer, Celebration, and Ribbon dances and the grand finale featuring the entire company.
Carousel (A Dance)
Music: Richard Rodgers “If I Loved You” (1945)

Be raptured with the Diablo Ballet premiere of the dramatic pas de deux from Carousel (A Dance) choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, Tony Award winner for Best Choreography for “An American in Paris”. Set to music from the Broadway Musical “Carousel.” This duet premiered in 2002 by New York City Ballet.
Music: Dead Combo
Choreography: Bruno Roque
Portuguese choreographer and former principal dancer of Ballet de Monte Carlo, Bruno Roque’s ballet was originally commissioned for Seattle Dance Collective with dancers from Pacific Northwest Ballet. Frugivory is a light, unphilosophical take on the idea that the object of our desire can drive us, or blind us.
