Lady of the Ring: A Chamber Ballopera
This Hobbit Day, journey to the East Kingdom for an enchanting evening of song, story, and dance. Spend the last evening of summer in a beautiful amphitheatre. There, innovative classical production company Cinballera Entertainment is putting on Lady of the Ring, a chamber ballopera based on J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless saga The Lord of the Rings.
The story will be told twice, first through song and then through dance. The opera is composed of diverse songs, including a rare song cycle commissioned by Tolkien himself, with words in English and the Elvish language from the books. The ballet includes original choreography to a piano concerto by Dmitri Shostakovich. Both were arranged, staged, and directed by Cinballera's co-founders, sisters Tiffany and Rebekah Brannan.
