Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 20-21
Talk about making the most of every performance. Oklahoma City Ballet brings a collection of three pieces to the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall’s Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre stage. First up, choreographer Anthony Tudor’s austere and elegant Lilac Garden enjoys its Oklahoma premiere. Set in Edwardian society, a young woman dances around her betrothal to a man she doesn’t love. The ballet next leaps into Nicolo Fonte’s daringly original Left Unsaid followed by Cobras in the Moonlight, a rhythmic and stirring piece from Margo Sappington to end the performance on an exquisite and exciting note. Tickets to the show are $33-60. Shows are at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the music hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. For more about the ballet and to purchase tickets, go online www.okcballet.com.
