On Saturday, March 1, at 7 p.m., Kahilu Theatre will present the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet – a late addition to the season made possible by generous community sponsorship. The ASFB is renowned for bold vision – top global choreographers, distinctive groundbreaking works, and virtuoso dancers.

While renowned for their edgy repertoire, ASFB is still a true ballet company but not a classical one. With former Joffrey Ballet principal Tom Mossbrucker as artistic director, they embrace modern, intricate, surprising choreography.

The ballet corps will give a full schools show at the theater the day before. They are sponsored by Rhoady Lee and Alan Gartenhaus, Barbara Kupchka, Baki and Bailey Wharton, Dr. Marcia Wishnick and Stanley Wishnick, and the Hawaii tour is supported by a grant from the Western Arts Federation.

Tickets are priced $20, $44, $54 and $64, and are available at the Kahilu Theatre Box Office, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday to Friday, in person or by phone at 885-6868, and 24 hours a day at the theater website at www.kahilutheatre.org.
