A New Armstrong Season

Ballet, big band, bluegrass and much more



 


 


The Armstrong Auditorium will host Oklahoma City Ballet for the first time for its new season filled with groundbreaking shows featuring performers from around the world.
 

September signals the 19th performing season for the Edmond arts center, opening with world-class choreographer Agnes de Mille’s cowboy kicking western “Rodeo.” This simple love story of a cowgirl desperate to be seen outside her tomboy persona was an immediate success when it was first staged in 1942, with de Mille playing the lead role.

Also headlining the Armstrong season opener is Russian composer Igor Stravinsky’s “Firebird.” Both ballets, though very different in content, had a significant impact on musical and dance thought, with both Stravinsky and de Mille breaking away from the expected norms of their time.

The season continues in November with an evening of tango compositions from pianist and radio host Christopher O’Riley and Latin Grammy-winning pianist and composer Pablo Ziegler, followed by violinist Ray Chen’s “Journey across Europe.” Returning to ballet in January, The Moscow Festival Ballet will perform two shows: “The Best of Russian Ballet” and “Romeo and Juliet & Best of Tchaikovsky.” The world-champion Dublin Irish Dance troupe and the Glenn Miller Orchestra close out this illustrious season, described by Armstrong’s concert manager Ryan Malone as one of their most “exciting seasons yet with performers from five continents.”

More information on tickets and shows can be found at ArmstrongAuditorium.org.
