Peter Pan Was Magic
Colorado Ballet put on an amazing performance of Peter Pan and it was seriously magic. The kids and I had really had a pretty rough week after our car accident and then my son’s broken foot, so when we were able to relax, enjoy time together and take in a little pixie dust, we were all in. We arrived at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House after what might possibly be one of the worst traffic jams known to Denver, but we were ready!
The ushers handed the kids their fantastic Fairy Fixers and we waited for the show to start. Our littlest dressed up as Tink and was so excited to watch one of her favorite movies come to life. As the show began, the artistic director for Colorado Ballet came out and asked parents to hold onto those fairy fixers until it was time to help out Tink and you guys, that had my kids focused for the entirety of the show!
The kids absolutely loved watching Peter, Wendy, Michael and John fly throughout the performances and battle Hook with the lost boys. They were enthralled with the amazing set changes and watching Tink flutter around through the lights and sky as well. We laughed as Peter and his shadow played a game of hide and seek and the kids and I just loved Nana through and through.
Peter Pan was truly perfection and it was done beautifully. I loved that my kids could follow the story, were so into the dancing, acting and artistry and that Colorado Ballet made it an interactive performance. It was so much fun and I am so glad that we were able to attend.
Coming Next to Colorado Ballet
Colorado Ballet is rounding our their 19-20 season with Ballet MasterWorks. After incredible performances of Peter Pan and Tour De Force, Colorado Ballet is finishing strong with their dancers favorite program of the season. We have attended several of the ballets, but we have never seen MasterWorks and after reading the press release, we might just need to plan an evening out!
Slated to open April 3rd-April 12, 2020, Ballet MasterWorks demonstrates athleticism, elegance and versatility. With a range of choreography and three works that remain central masterpieces of the 20th century, Ballet MasterWorks is sure to send chills down your spine.
Ballet MasterWorks sounds like an incredible experience and one that will close out the 2019-2020 season with a bang. However, the 2020-2021 season with Colorado Ballet promises to be even more amazing with Giselle, The Nutcracker, The Wizard of Oz, The Great Gatsby and of course Ballet MasterWorks!
