Expect the Unexpected

Expect the unexpected as Ballet Arizona puts acclaimed choreographers in the spotlight for an evening of new and innovative ballet. Featuring the Return Ib Andersen’s Rio, the Arizona premiere of In Creases, and more!


Choreography by Ib Andersen

Set to music by Philip Glass, Rio explores the movement and vivacity found in Brazilian culture. Inspired by samba, this playful ballet recalls the joy of the country of Brazil.

In Creases

Choreography by Justin Peck, Resident Choreographer of New York City Ballet

Choreographed by 2018 Tony Award-Winner and one of the most sought-after choreographers today, this ballet is compact, intense, and lightning fast. With music by Philip Glass, this Arizona premiere will be the highlight of the fall dance season.


Thanks to our friends from Boston Ballet for the video above, we are excited to share this “In the Studio” piece featuring rehearsals for Justin Peck’s In Creases with the company dancers of Boston Ballet.

In Creases is sponsored by Bob Benson.


Choreography by Nayon Iovino


Named “Best-Up-And-Coming=Choreographer”  By Phoenix New Times, Ballet Arizona dancer Nayon Iovino will present another brand new work on the Orpheum stage entitled Inherent, featuring scores by Vivaldi, Shostakovich, and Weber. A story about the legacy of life through dance, this piece takes you on a journey and grabs you by the heart.

Nayon Iovino has been accepted into the New York Choreographic Institute for their Spring 2019 program. Founded in the Spring of 2000 by Irene Diamond and Peter Martins, the Institute promotes the development of choreographers and dancers involved in classical choreography by providing opportunities to develop their talents. This prestigious honor is highly competitive and the choreographers are selected from a large number of applicants received each year and reviewed by a panel of experts. We are so proud of this incredible achievement!
