Ballet Ariel at Arvada Center

The MJO is excited to be collaborating with  Ballet Ariel  to provide the music for “The Birth of Rock And Roll”. While this style of music is not new to MJO, this setting as the live, on-stage band joined by the talented Ballet Ariel group promises to be a fun, exciting challenge for all.

'The Birth of Rock and Roll'

The 'Birth of Rock and Roll' ballet tells the amazing story of musical and cultural revolution from the 1930s to the 1950s in America.  Told through the eyes of a traveling musician, and danced to swing era songs, jump and electric blues, and early rock & roll, this ballet will be fun and exciting for all.  The Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra's live on-stage music for the ballet will have the audience dancing in their seats.
