Ballerina by Degas Tea Party (CPRD) <p>Ballerina by Degas tells the story of a young dancer, Simone, her rapid rise within the ballet company and the Impressionist artist, Degas, who records it all. Dappled with jealousies and rivalries, under the watchful eyes of their mothers, the young dancers vie for position at the barre and in the company. Performed to the music of George Bizet, Gabriel Faure and Adolphe Adam, three acclaimed composers of the day, Simone’s hard work and commitment quickly propel her from neophyte to etoile (lead dancer). “Ballerinas by Degas exposed Artistic and Executive Director Ilena Norton as a passionate storyteller…To the backdrop of some of the most recognizable paintings by French artist Edgar Degas, the story of a young dancer unfolded. It was enchanting to see the art come to life and to follow the original storyline”, reviewed by presentingdenver.org in April, 2018.<br /><br />Two mini-performances, telling the story of the young Simone in the Paris Opera school just for young audiences, will be presented on February 23rd at the Pinnacle Performing Arts Center, 1001 W. 84th Avenue, Denver, CO 80260 and on February 24th at Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Theatre, 119 Park Avenue West, Denver, CO 80205.
