Ballet Kelowna, under the leadership of Simone Orlando, wraps its landmark 15th anniversary season with the power and passion of the full-length ballet, A Streetcar Named Desire.

Choreographed by John Alleyne, for Ballet BC’s 2005/06 season, the Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer-Prize winning classic tells the story of two sisters – one clinging to a bygone era, the other embracing the reality of post-WW2 life in America.

Hailed as “an impressive achievement” (The Globe and Mail), this remount is dear to Orlando, who performed the principal role of Blanche Dubois during the 2006 world premiere in Vancouver. Experience nine Ballet Kelowna dancers supported by students from the Victoria Academy of Ballet perform this stunning work, set to the original jazz score by BC-based composer Tobin Stokes.
