Ballet Victoria’s Frankenstein

November 2, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) welcomes Ballet Victoria November 2nd at 7:30pm.

Ballet Victoria is a boutique professional ballet company with four yearly productions – dramatic, technically demanding, and often laced with humor. Having produced over 73 new works, Ballet Victoria is starting its sixteenth season. With the direction of Paul Destrooper, the artistic team is exploring new territory.

Celebrating 200 years, Shelley’s original gothic novel, Frankenstein, meets Coralli and Perrot’s timeless ballet Giselle in an alchemy only Destrooper dares bring to the stage. Horror, romance, and science fiction are galvanized into a new ballet driven by a score boasting Verdi, Shostakovich, Dukas, Catalani and Adam. Think Corpse Bride meets Frankenstein.

“Very few people are still creating “story ballets”, Destrooper says. “To reach across not just to different cultures but to different generations, it has to make sense.”

Ticket early as this event is sure to sell out!
Adults $20, Senior $18, Youth $15.

Tickets available at the WICA Box Office: (360) 221-8268 or online at https://tickets.wicaonline.org
