Gilding the Lily 

By Ursula Pflug, Bill James From the House of Mirth (avant premiere) James Kudelka, Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie

From the House of Mirth is a dance/opera inspired by Edith Wharton’s 1905 novel, choreographed by James Kudelka.

By Kaija Pepper “Adam and Eve and Steve (The Goldberg Variations, Side 2)” James Kudelka, Ballet BC

The title of James Kudelka’s new work for Ballet British Columbia varies. On the program cover and in publicity it’s “The Goldberg Variations – Side 2: Adam and Eve and Steve”.
