Jan. 22, 1997 -- Tickets are available now to join a champagne brunch bus tour to the Colorado Ballet's world premier of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Sunday, Feb. 16.
The tour is a fund-raiser for the Snowy Range Summer Dance Festival in cooperation with the Colorado Ballet. The annual festival, directed by University of Wyoming dance professor Patricia Tate, is open to dance students, junior high school through college, and any interested adult dancer, teacher, composer, accompanist or choreographer.
Members of the Colorado Ballet and Kim Robards Dance, in residence, have been the festival's featured instructors.
The bus will depart Laramie at 9 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, from the School of Extended Studies building at the east end of fraternity row. The $80 ticket price is for transportation, center orchestra seat, champagne brunch, and an exclusive behind-the-curtain tour with Martin Fredmann, Colorado Ballet artistic director. Included in the ticket cost is a $50 tax deductible contribution to this summer's third annual Snowy Range Summer Dance Festival.
Colorado Ballet's world premier of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, a member of the New York City Ballet. Dance Magazine regards Wheeldon as one of the most promising classical choreographers working today.
