TICKETS Boulder Ballet is celebrating the landmark achievements of NASA’s New Horizons Pluto-Kuiper Belt Mission. We’ve taken the beauty and mystery of space, the courage of exploration, the fragility and strength of humanity and created an evening of ballet that will take the audience on a journey of time and space.

The cornerstone piece of the show will incorporate images of Pluto and the Kuiper Belt taken by New Horizons into exciting choreography by Artistic Director Ana Claire and Claire Davison, a Boulder-trained dancer now with American Ballet Theatre. It will be set to an original, dynamic score by local award-winning composer Paul Fowler, music professor at Naropa University. Another piece in the performance will be choreographed by Associate Artistic Director Lance Hardin and Amy Earnest to electronic music composed by Michael Schulze, teaching associate professor at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music.
The opening night post-performance reception will also be a special opportunity to meet some of the local scientists who brought this mission to life along with the dancers who, through dance, recognize this unparalleled accomplishment. We are excited and truly privileged to be bringing this unique combination of science and art—a perfect example of STEAM—to the Boulder community.
