BOISE PHIL and BALLET IDAHO PRESENT, SOUND IN MOTION

We are thrilled to be joining forces with the Ballet Idaho in October 2024 to produce a unique performance of music and dance together on stage.

The Boise Phil will open the show with a tribute to classical ballet’s most iconic composer, Tchaikovsky, performing The Sleeping Beauty Suite.

In the second act, we will see the music take physical form with two very different choreographic and musical compositions. Opening the act is Terence Marling’s Twice  (Once) set to the gorgeous music of contemporary composer Anna Clyne’s Within Her Arms. This is a subtle, yet stirring piece that contemplates the afterlife, drawn from very personal experiences of both composer and choreographer.

Closing out the program is Justin Peck’s heralded Pulcinella Suite set to the jubilant and complex music of Igor Stravinsky’s score. Created for the New York City Ballet, this work exemplifies all of the dynamic range, technical invention, and virtuosity that Peck is famous for and the Ballet Idaho dancers exemplify so well.
