Performance Details

Festival Artistic Director Damian Woetzel presents an all-star cast in a rehearsal-style performance, featuring new works at the 2018 Festival, specifically focusing on the relationship of dance and music. This UpClose will highlight the Festival’s Leonard Bernstein Composer-In-Residence, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, and the world premiere to her work, choreographed by Justin Peck in his first Festival commission. This performance will also feature the Vail premiere of Blueprint with choreography by Pam Tanowitz and music by Caroline Shaw in addition to live musical accompaniment with Brooklyn Rider.

Elevate your evening by attending a pre-show and post-performance dinner with the dancers at Splendido in Beaver Creek. (Tickets sold separately.)

LIMITED Valet Parking at the Vilar Performing Arts Center will be available on this evening. Please plan to arrive early, as several activities are being held simultaneously in Beaver Creek Resort.
