It is a New Year, with a Brand New Ballet

King Arthur's Camelot set sneak peek!

2013 has been a fantastic year for Cincinnati in all regards. As a whole, we are on the up, and there is much to look forward to in 2014. A lot has been happening in the arts, and they show no sign of stopping in the next calendar year. One thing in particular has caught our eye, however. By day we help great people in our Buy Here Pay Here lots, but now at night, we may just have to catch a brand new ballet. That’s right, February will bring a new full-length ballet from Cincinnati Ballet entitled “King Arthur’s Camelot”.

Here is what David Lyman of had to say about the exciting new ballet:

“It’s been 20 years since Cincinnati Ballet created a completely new full-length ballet. They’ve done other full-length ballets in the meantime. But not like this, with a commissioned score, new sets, new costumes and, of course, new choreography. That will all change on Feb. 13, when the company premieres “King Arthur’s Camelot.” Choreographed by the company’s artistic director/CEO Victoria Morgan, it features a score by Canadian opera composer John Estacio, costumes by Sandra Woodall and sets by Joe Tilford. Weighing in with a budget of $1.25 million, the production is expected to be one of the highlights of what has already been a spectacular 50th anniversary season for the company.”

The ballet was nice enough to share some images with us to keep our interests peak, included an image of the set design (shown above). As we get closer and closer to the debut of the full-length ballet, we are sure that more and more images will be released (we are hoping for some sneak peak clips of rehearsals too)! 2013 was a great year, but we are already well on our way towards making 2014 a better one, Cincinnati! Let’s show the world just how resilient and great we really are!
