Dance Through Time

Every year, Opera Atelier and the School of Atelier Ballet offers Dance Through Time – an opportunity to discover historical dances. Performances range from Renaissance and Baroque to 19th century Character Dance, and excerpts from the Romantic ballet. This family-friendly program also includes Flamenco dancing, a new contemporary piece, and an Opera Atelier guest singer to perform one or two arias. Opera Atelier’s founding Co-Artistic Director Marshall Pynkoski provides educational and entertaining commentary.

Watch this space for a date in 2020!
