Ballet Kelowna’s first commissioned full-length ballet, Macbeth, is by Canadian dance luminary Alysa Pires. Originally scheduled to premiere in May 2020, the work was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With its themes of ambition, power, and corruption, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth has remained relevant throughout time. Pires brings her signature athleticism and theatricality to this contemporary adaptation of the iconic tragedy exploring the dark side of human nature. With an original score by Canadian composer Adam Sakiyama and stunning visuals by Okanagan artist Jane Everett, Macbeth promises to be a gripping, visceral experience.
