Though it may be a 'tale as old as time,' Inland Pacific Ballet has found a way to make Beauty and the Beast terrifically new in its dazzling original adaptation of the fabled story. When her father is abducted after picking a rose from the garden of the mysterious Beast, Beauty offers herself in exchange for her parent's safety. Thus begins a journey of love and transformation for both herself and the Beast. Featuring a score of classical masters including Dvorak, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn, Beauty and the Beast also features spectacular sets, stunning costumes and amazing theatrical effects. The addition of sublime choreography makes this ballet a feast for the senses, one to be savored long after the lights come up. Learn More

While the dancers were of a high caliber, especially Melissa Sandvig who competed recently on Fox TV's "So You Think You Can Dance," the vocabulary of the choreographer was very limited and repetitious.
I would love to see what these dancers could do in the hands of another choreographer.
A world premiere of Hammerklavier, a multi-media ballet set to Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 29 in B flat major, Op. 106, widely considered to be one of the most important works of the composer’s third period. The sonata, written in 1817-18, represents the spectacular emergence of many of the themes that were to recur in Beethoven’s late period: the reinvention of traditional forms, and a return to pre-classical compositional traditions.
Completing the program: Rogers’ acclaimed Transcription, set to Busoni’s piano transcription of Bach’s Chaconne in D minor; Ostinato In C set to Sergey Taneyev’s Piano Quintet, and Dankgesang set to Beethoven’s third movement from Quartet in A minor.
