Cowichan Performing Arts Centre and Ballet Kelowna present

A Streetcar Named Desire

"The best contemporary dancing I have ever witnessed!" - The Kelowna Daily Courier

“An impressive achievement.” - Globe and Mail

In celebration of Ballet Kelowna’s 15th anniversary season, the Company presents its first full-length ballet – A Streetcar Named Desire, by renowned Canadian choreographer John Alleyne.

Adapted from Tennessee Williams’ 1947 Pulitzer Prize winning drama, Alleyne’s Streetcar combines compelling dance with superb acting, lavish costumes, and an original jazz score by BC-based composer Tobin Stokes.

Drawing on the complexities of Williams’ play, this production of Streetcar explores themes of vitality and fragility and the struggle between the dying aristocracy and the working class.
