We are proud to announce our partnership with the California Chamber Orchestra for an upcoming ballet! ABA will be performing "The Carnival of the Animals” with CCO on Saturday, April 7th at 7:30pm @ the Murrieta Mesa High School!

Our award winning dancers will dance to the music of Camille Saint-Saens, Jennifer Higdon, and Claude Debussy as performed by the highly acclaimed California Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Dana Zimbric.

Camille Saint-Saens "Carnival of the Animals" is a humorous piece that consists of multiple movements dedicated to specific animals. The piece opens with the Royal March of the Lion, then is followed by Hens & Roosters, Tortoises, Kangaroos, and even The Elephant.

We are extremely excited for this amazing, artistic collaboration! ABA directors Dana Nelson and Jose Chavez will choreograph unique dance pieces for each of the musical pieces that will capture your imagination!
