Under the leadership of Simone Orlando, Ballet Kelowna celebrates its 15th anniversary season with the power and passion of the full-length ballet – A Streetcar Named Desire. Choreographed by renowned Canadian choreographer John Alleyne, the Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize winning classic drama tells the story of two sisters – one clinging to a bygone era, the other embracing the reality of post-WW2 life in America.

Hailed as “an impressive achievement” (The Globe and Mail), Alleyne’s Streetcar explores themes of vitality and fragility and the struggle between the dying aristocracy and the working class and combines compelling dance from nine Ballet Kelowna dancers supported by students from the Victoria Academy of Ballet performing this stunning work, with superb acting, lavish costumes, and an original jazz score by BC-based composer Tobin Stokes.
