Canyon Concert Ballet presents An Evening of Chopin and Ballet.  This unique and beautiful evening features Michel Fokine’s 1908 Les Sylphides.  One of the masterpieces of 20th-century choreography set to orchestral pieces by Frederic Chopin, Les Sylphides depicts a moonlit encounter between a young man and a corps of ethereal supernatural beings. Stylistically, it evokes 19th-century Romanticism.  But, because it is without plot, it can also be considered the first 20th-century abstract ballet.  The second half of the evening presents the world premiere of Artistic Director, Alicia Laumann’s, Etudes, a contemporary ballet featuring CCB’s Company and Academy dancers.  This new ballet will include live accompaniment of some of Chopin’s most beloved solo piano pieces.
