Flames of Paris
Step back in time to the French Revolution. Showcasing special guests Chun Wai Chan and Monica Gomez of the Houston Ballet, this classical pas de deux is an outstanding display of virtuosity and strength.
Experience the dizzying spins, whirling turns, and high kicks of lively cancan dancers in a Paris café. Special guests from Ballet San Antonio and Colorado Ballet accompany MFB’s dancers in this ballet set to the well-known score of Jacques Offenbach.
Sponsored in part by the FMH Foundation, Arts Council of Midland, Odessa Arts, and the Rea Charitable Trust.
