FOLSOM — Always receiving rave reviews, Pamela Hayes Classical Ballet will bring several classical pieces combined into one dramatic story ballet. An Evening of Classical Ballet will be performed at the  Harris Center for the Arts, Aug. 2-4.

Pas De Quatre, Pas de Fiancees and Le Corsair Pas de Deux will be performed as well as scenes from “Don Quioxote,” “Gisselle,” “Romeo & Juliet” and “Coppelia.” Pas De Quatre is a ballet divertissement originally choreographed by Jules Perrot in 1845. Pas De Quatre captures the essence of the Romantic style as the ballerinas danced with demure lightness, delicacy and poise. The steps demand that each area of classical ballet technique is executed; 168 years later, choreographers continue to bring this piece to the stage.

Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Pamela Hayes recognized the challenge of bringing An Evening of Classical Ballet to the Harris Center – a project requiring the involvement of current and former Company members, apprentice and young dancers. The end result, however, has more than paid off in a production that many call “timeless”

“We are so pleased to be bringing back this wonderful dramatic ballet,” said Hayes. “It was a hit with audiences and critics, and our company members are both challenged and inspired by performing these scenes.”

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $15 to $26. Purchase them online at harriscenter.net or from Harris Center ticket office at (916) 608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Harris Center for the Arts at Folsom Lake College is located at 10 College Parkway, Folsom.
