One of the most renowned and refined ballet dance companies in the world is coming to perform in Santa Barbara this month. The Joffrey ballet company is an artistic leader in dance and education. Their reputation elevates the field, as they are known for countless, wonderful productions of classical ballets. Having in the past performed such the Nutcracker and the Rite of Spring, this amazing group will bring a special set of performances right here to Santa Barbara.
The March performance will feature a well-known Joffrey program entitled Incantations, which is choreographed by the masterful and long-storied Val Caniparoli. The music for the program comes from the minimalist Russian composer Alexandre Rabinovitch-Barakovsky. Other notable choreographers who will hold performances at the Joffrey Santa Barbara show include Stanton Welch and Alexander Ekman. For those familiar with these names, their reputations speak for themselves. For those unfamiliar, this show will be a collective presentation of some of the most respected creative minds in the world of ballet.
Enjoying this show will be made easy by the quality of performances, but it will be even better with the aid of an excellent venue. The Granada Theatre is a classic Santa Barbara favorite. This spacious and visually stunning theatre will provide the perfect acoustics and viewing experience for the evening’s audience. Those who miss out on the Joffrey Ballet performance should definitely check out the rest of ballets, great broadway shows, films and other shows consistently held at the Granada Theatre.
Considering the delightful nature of the Granada and our local passion for the arts, it’s truly exciting to have such a distinguished ballet company bring their talents to Santa Barbara. Hurry up and get your tickets soon, as they are sure not to last for too long. The Joffrey Ballet will be in Santa Barbara for only one night and this is not an event we think our guests should miss.
