Tulsa Ballet returns to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center with the Val Caniparoli and Ma Cong version of this holiday favorite which premiered last year. This new interpretation of the classic features moving scenery, projections, and more than one thousand costumes.
Both Caniparoli and Cong are previous Resident Choreographers for the company led by Marcello Angelini so it only seems fitting that this third production performed by Tulsa Ballet has been created by them. Angelini said,
“Val Caniparoli and Ma Cong have created a stunning new work. One that incorporates 21st century technology while taking us back to the traditional setting of the Victorian era. We know this production will entertain Tulsans for years to come.”
Caniparoli adds, “We really created it for all ages. It’s magical and it’s for the young at heart. We want you to be able to bring your children and see it through the children’s eyes. I just really wanted it to be entertaining and go from generation to generation.”
The dancers will be accompanied by the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra for the 10-show run.
