‘Peter Pan’ from the Milwaukee Ballet airs April 18 on WCNY
April 15, 2014
Choreographed by Milwaukee Ballet Artistic Director Michael Pink, “Peter Pan” took the city by storm when it premiered in 2010, playing to sold-out houses and earning nightly standing ovations. Due to popular demand, Milwaukee Ballet re-staged the show in 2012, when it was recorded by MPTV. Featuring an original score from British composer Philip Feeney, this impressive production features dancers flying high over the stage and a larger-than-life crocodile that crawls along the orchestra pit.
The production, taped at Milwaukee’s Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, features Leading Artist Marc Petrocci as Peter Pan and rising star Valerie Harmon as Wendy. The production boasts a notable creative team, including Emmy Award-winning lighting designer David Grill, and Emmy Award-winning producer/director Phillip Byrd, who produced the program for broadcast.
Airs April 18 at 10 p.m. on WCNY and re-airs April 21 at 7 p.m. on Plus.
