Starting Friday, April 17

In this triple bill performance, audiences will get to see three different works as they premiere in Oklahoma, with Nine Sinatra Songs being a first for the Oklahoma City Ballet. “We prove the art of ballet is much more than tutus, tiaras and Tchaikovsky,” the ballet’s website says about the show. Moby’s techno sounds will fill the theater as Play arrives on stage. As the dancers march, slide, scoot and accelerate to choreography by Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch, the audience will experience, through sight, sound and movement, the crowded streets of urban life. As Dear Miss Cline takes over, Pasty Cline’s famed country music, originally choreographed for Smuin Ballet, will bring San Francisco choreographer Amy Seiwert’s brilliance back to Oklahoma City. And finally, Nine Sinatra Songs will uses Twyla Tharp’s genius choreography, set to the incredible Frank Sinatra, that brings ballet, modern dance and ballroom to the stage.
