Scheherazade – 1001 Arabian Nights

at Civic Center Music Hall

Join the Oklahoma City Ballet for an exotic triple bill production. First up is Scheherazade, a visual feast of striking scenery and costumes that showcase Dennis Spaight’s sensual choreography. With Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s sweeping, dramatic score, this memorable interpretation of the classic “1001 Arabian Nights” is fully brought to life.

Next is Nacho Duato’s Without Words, featuring six songs by Franz Schubert transcribed for cello by Mischa Maisky. With the instrumental score, love and death appear as the central subjects derived from the music. Originally choreographed for American Ballet Theatre, Without Words is a signature piece of Duato, one of today’s most prolific international choreographers.

Finally, rounding out the evening is a world premiere from up-and-coming choreographer Ma Cong.
