Opus Performing Arts' Spring Showcase

Opus Performing Arts is proud to present our annual “Spring Showcase” at 7:00pm on June 11 and 2:00pm on June 12, 2022. Audiences are sure to enjoy this school performance, featuring Opus students in ballet, tap, contemporary, jazz & lyrical. Opus’ Spring Showcase highlights the instructional aspect of the school from our youngest students of three years old to our intermediate/advanced high school students. 

This year, the performance will include an excerpt of the romantic ballet, “La Sylphide,” originally choreographed in 1832, it is one of the world’s oldest ballets. “La Sylphide” will feature two graduating advanced students, Bailey Kager playing the role of the Sylph and Tyler Nelson as James. In addition, Opus’ Spring Showcase includes new works by artistic director Brooke Evans and faculty members Damian Cade, Celeste Hartsook, Gabby Malagreca, Elizabeth Malone and Diane Williams.

Performances of Opus’ Spring Showcase are appropriate for all ages and will be available for viewing either in-person at the Mount Baker Theatre (masks are recommended but not required) or by live-streaming the performance for at-home viewing.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
