“The entire region benefits from the Colorado Ballet,” said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock via video.
“An Evening in Verona” at “The Ellie Lobby” offered “streets” of wine and spirits pulls, jewelry surprise boxes from John Atencio and passed hors d’oeuvres from Kevin Taylor Restaurant. A Romeo and Juliet performance was breathtaking with sumptuous sets for the balcony scene choreographed by Derek Deane with music by Sergei Prokofiev, featuring Sharon Wehner and Yosvani Ramos.
The second splendid performance was ARROW Five Years Out choreographed by Sandra Brown with music by Scott O’Neill. Featured dancers were Chandra Kuykendall, Domenico Luciano, Dana Benton, Francisco Estevez, Asuka Sasaki, Ariel Breitman, Mackenzie Gael Thomas, Morgan Buchanan and Nicholas Pelletier.
Mistress of ceremonies was Aimee Caplis and auctioneer Doug Tisdale raised a ton of money for the company. Gala chairs Anne and Jim Hillary praised Colorado Ballet and with their 31-member committee, created a stellar multi-faceted evening culminating with dinner, desserts and dancing on stage.
