AT THE COVEY CENTER FOR THE ARTS An Inspired Version of a Family Favorite: A Ballet Unlike Any Other.
Inspired by Carlo Collodi’s beloved book, choreographed and directed by Lindsay Folkman (Utah’s Best of State Choreographer 2014), and performed by the students and faculty of the new Barbara Barrington Jones Family Foundation Ballet West Academy at Thanksgiving Point, “PINOCCHIO: Awake My Soul” presents this timeless tale as you have never seen before. Come follow the carpenter, Geppetto, and his wooden puppet, Pinocchio, through the adventurous ups and downs of life, as they find, lose, and rediscover their own perceptions of LOVE and HOPE. Full of symbolism in both movement and lyric, “Pinocchio: Awake My Soul” is truly an inspired version of a family favorite.
