Local performers join acclaimed artists in ‘La Danse et La Musique’, Feb. 9

From a new ballet starring an internationally renowned ballet dancer to “The Golden Voice” of Daniels Recital Hall in Seattle, La Danse et La Musique brings a grand performance featuring both movement and music to San Juan Community Theatre Saturday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

BalletThe ballet, A Fairytale Romance, was created and choreographed by the island’s Lina Downes, who will direct the evening as well. Featuring the music of Vivaldi and Marin Marais, the ballet stars Seattle ballet dancer Danny Boulet, who enchanted Friday Harbor audiences with his performances in the 2010 and 2011 Winter Carnivales.

Boulet will be joined by island ballerina Caitlin Ross, as well as by members of Downes’ new youth ballet company, La Danse de le Mer.

During the music portion of the evening, lyric soprano Angela K. Morgan, who has received rave reviews for her work at Daniels Recital hall in Seattle, will sing light classics and opera on the Whittier stage. Also featured will be singer Mary Lou Mills and pianist Stella Joh.

A portion of proceeds from the evening will go toward further development of the new dance company. The Business Partner for La Danse et La Musique is Coho Restaurant.

Tickets are $16 for adults, $8 for student reserved and $5 student RUSH at the door.

The SJCT box office is open Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
