Ancient Ireland is a mesmerizing world driven by elemental powers and dragons, gatekeepers to other worlds and guardians of the treasures of the universe. In Dragon & the Night Queen, Ballet Fantastique Choreographer-Producers Donna Marisa and Hannah Bontrager forge a new retelling of ancient Irish legends, with live music by Gerry Rempel Ensemble and international award-winning Eliot Grasso (uilleann pipes).
Ballet Fantastique’s signature fusion of dramatic dance theater and live songcraft capture and reimagine the rich Celtic myths of Morgan le Fay (the sea goddess of the legends of Avalon), the Night Queen Rhiannon, the Morrigan (Phantom Queen) and the Dragon. Anchored in the narratives of the past, Ballet Fantastique’s Dragon & the Night Queen is a bonny, vivid new ballet, filled with exuberant live music and riotous spirit. Live music: Gerry Rempel Ensemble + Eliot Grasso play new music, Celtic rock and ancient Irish traditional.
