“This ballet was big, bold and beautiful” said Gwen Curran from The Register Guard. “The standing ovation at the end said it best: This is another hit for Ballet Fantastique.”
After long nights of rehearsal, hard work, and much needed volunteers, sponsors, and supporters, ZORRO: The Ballet was a wonderful success! With live music from the band Incendio, and violinist virtuoso Kim Angelis, Ballet Fantastique was able to create another dramatic, all-original ballet production!
Alex Notman, Arts Editor for Eugene Weekly, said, “The costumes and choreography were bright, innovative and fearless. All set against a music backdrop by the California-based Incendio Band, an exhilarating mix of Spanish guitar, violin and a dash of rock ‘n’ roll.”
