The Butterfly Lovers Concerto
Saturday, April 30 at 7:30 PM
Frequent Flyers’ Professional Company joins the Boulder Philharmonic for this one-night-only performance at Macky Auditorium on CU Boulder’s campus!
This only-in-Boulder collaboration also features the Colorado Symphony’s Associate Concertmaster Claude Sim as violin soloist in The Butterfly Lovers Concerto, based on a Chinese legend involving, among other things, the idea of rebirth. Frequent Flyers dancers will soar above the orchestra in this stunning performance.
Other dimensions of the rebirth theme are explored in two orchestral showpieces: Rimsky-Korsakov’s dramatic Russian Easter Overture, and Stravinsky’s much-loved suite from The Firebird ballet. Opening the program, is a new work by Mason Bates titled Undistant that reflects on our recent experience of “cocooning” during the pandemic isolation and the thrill of reconnecting with one another yet again.
Please note this is an in-person only event and livestream will not be available. $10 child/student tickets are available by calling 303.449.1343.
