Fair warning: Aspen Santa Fe Ballet is not your grandmother’s ballet.
Join Aspen Santa Fe Ballet as it officially kicks off its 20th anniversary season with a program that celebrates the company’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of contemporary dance. To launch its three-year residency with VPAC, ASFB unveils two new company commissions: Re:play by the Brazilian choreographer Fernando Melo and Huma Rojo by Cayetano Soto, his third work for ASFB. Recent commission and last summer’s audience favorite, Silent Ghost, by Alejandro Cerrudo, completes the program. Spanning a range of moods and styles, this innovative, diverse program is sure to have something for everyone!
Described by the New York Times as “A breath of fresh air,” Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Company stands out as a model of what a small ballet company should be with its “musicality, athleticism, and technique-conscious delivery.”
