Join Peter Pan, Wendy, and the Darling kids as they travel to Neverland and meet the Lost Boys, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell, and a very hungry crocodile! The classic story of ‘the boy who wouldn’t grow up’ is transformed into a full-length ballet with challenging and charming choreography by Septime Webre that — quite literally — has dancers flying through air.
Both the young and ‘young at heart’ will be with delighted by the ballet’s colorful costumes, whimsical scenery, and soaring score, composed in 1994 by Cincinnati Ballet Music Director Carmon DeLeone. This production of Peter Pan kicks off a season-long celebration of Maestro DeLeone’s 50th anniversary with the Company.
Maestro DeLeone has also been named one of the 2018 Real Men Wear Pink candidates. Through a special partnership with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, presented by TriHealth, 10% of ticket sales for the October 25 opening night performance of Peter Pan will be donated to the American Cancer Society, in an effort raise awareness and support breast cancer research. Cincinnati Ballet will also host cancer survivors and their families for the performance.
