Santa Clarita Ballet Company celebrates their 25th anniversary with Beatrix Potter As Well As Hansel and Gretel
Twenty-five years ago, the Santa Clarita Ballet Company was formed and debuted their most beloved ballet The Tales of Beatrix Potter. Over the years, SCBC has enriched local arts by presenting wonderful ballet performances such as Cinderella, A Midsummers Night’s Dream, Sleeping Beauty, and our annual Nutcracker, just to name a few. Through rigorous training at the Santa Clarita Ballet Academy, SCBC dancers have been able to perform exquisite choreography alongside professional artists. Many SCBC alumni have earned their place within highly regarded national dance programs on collegiate and professional levels all over the world, such as San Francisco Ballet, Royal Swedish Ballet, Lines Ballet, Kansas City Ballet, Washington DC Ballet, Grand Rapids Ballet, just to name a few.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, this June 8 the Santa Clarita Ballet will bring back The Tales of Beatrix Potter along with one of their original works for ballet, Hansel and Gretel. There will be two shows at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons on June 8 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
The Tales of Beatrix Potter is a children’s ballet inspired by the Royal Ballet version. SCBC will set their performance to the same musical score as the original and will be narrated by an amazing English performer. There will be new, elaborate costuming including full masks for all major characters, and of course the set is a darling backdrop to the cherished stories of Peter Rabbit, Flopsy Bunny, Jeremy Fisher, Jemima Puddle-duck, and more.
Hansel & Gretel is a new production for SCBC, complete with beautiful costumes and sets. This dramatic story will feature SCBC’s beautiful and highly accomplished upper level company dancers. This work is set to the very recognizable Hansel & Gretel opera score by Engelbert Humperdinck.
