Sacramento Ballet’s co-artistic director Ron Cunningham’s 25th Anniversary Season will kick off Oct. 18 through 21, 2012 with Romeo and Juliet at the Community Center Theater (1301 L Street). Founded in 1954 by Barbara and Deane Crockett, the Sacramento Ballet is undeniably one of the region’s finest arts companies. Cunningham took over as artistic director in 1988 after Ms. Crockett had retired two years prior, and in 1989 Cunningham was joined by his wife Carinne Binda and the two became co-artistic directors. Ever since, according to their website (http://www.sacballet.org/), “Cunningham and Binda have successfully chosen ballets that balance public appeal with works that stretch and develop the artistic capabilities of the dancers.” Cunningham’s Romeo and Juliet will not be seen again until the 2017 season, so don’t miss your chance to see what he himself calls “the absolute best choreography of my career.” The Oct. 18, 19 and 20 performances start at 7:30 p.m., with Oct. 21 starting at 2 p.m. Ticket prices range from $17 to $70, so even budget-minded individuals should be able to see this masterpiece. Two hundred-plus period-inspired costumes, beautiful sets and scenery, pageantry, swordplay, drama and amazing choreography tell the story without words. Trust us, you’ll be left with goosebumps (and maybe tears) after feeling the emotions these dancers can bring out of you.
