The Four Seasons – A World Premiere

Performance

May 18 – June 5, 2021
8 pm nightly at Desert Botanical Garden
Choreography: Ib Andersen
Music: Antonio Vivaldi

Ballet Arizona returns to the Desert Botanical Garden stage with The Four Seasons, a journey in movement through winter, spring, summer and fall. The company’s first major public performance since the spring of 2020, The Four Seasons marks a triumphant return to the stage and promises to be another thrilling masterpiece like Eroica, Topia, and Round.

This world premiere performance features innovative choreography by Ballet Arizona Artistic Director Ib Andersen, as well as all-new set designs and multimedia elements that embrace the surrounding desert backdrop. Adding to the visual experience will be brand new costumes designed and painted by Ib.

Ib Andersen’s previous work at Desert Botanical Garden inspired The New York Times chief dance critic Alastair Macaulay to designate Ballet Arizona as “one of the most enterprising companies anywhere.”

The Four Seasons will run for 15 breathtaking evening performances with the backdrop of matchless desert landscape and the setting sun, set to the vibrant score of Antonio Vivaldi.

Arrive early and watch the professional company take ballet class on stage. A gourmet picnic menu will be available for purchase including beer, wine and non-alcoholic refreshments.

Face masks will be required for all patrons when not actively eating or drinking.

Due to continued health and safety measures, seating will be socially distant and the general admission section will be assigned seating. As a result of these changes, there is a two-ticket minimum purchase for this year’s performances.
