Damsels of the Night

Damsels of the Night (Les Demoiselles de la Nuit)In its annual tradition, Citie Ballet winds-up its season with a delightfully original story ballet. Damsels of the Night (Les Demoiselles de la Nuit) is inspired by Jean Anouilh’s original idea from the 1948 ballet of the same name, and features excerpts of the original score by stage and film composer Jean Francais. But the formerly tragic tale been completely re-imagined as a comedy. Citie Ballet’s production will transport you to the romance of Paris’s rooftops, where alley cats play by their own rules, and a musician, a seamstress and a White Cat learn some lessons in love. The production is choreographed by Francois Chevennement and Laurence Menotti. The libretto is by Edmonton’s Katherine Koller, librettist for last season’s Murder at the Strand.
