BalletX, led by Artistic & Executive Director Christine Cox, returns to Vail Dance Festival to present The Little Prince – a full-length ballet by choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, 2019 recipient of the prestigious Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award. Inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s timeless novella of adventure and enlightenment, Lopez Ochoa’s The Little Prince is a ballet for the whole family, sure to delight the imagination of children and adults alike. Composer Peter Salem, best known for his soundtrack work on the BBC TV series Call the Midwife, will perform original music live onstage as a one-man band, alongside the dancers. Sets by Matt Saunders, costumes by Danielle Truss, lighting by Michael Korsch, and dramaturgy provided by Nancy Meckler. In recent years BalletX has won over Vail audiences, performing in 2018’s Closing Night Celebration, and as the festival’s 2016 resident dance company.
