West Hawai‘i Dance Theatre presenting ‘Rikki Tikki Tavi Ballet’
The West Hawai‘i Dance Theatre is presenting “Rikki Tikki Tavi” Ballet with an opening act that highlights the dance theatre’s students and teaching artists in a variety of offerings including the Spanish flavored classic ballet, “Paquita.”
Newly choreographed by Timour Bourtasenkov, “Rikki Tikki Tavi” is an original family-friendly story ballet based on Rudyard Kipling’s classic book, with music by Alfred Schnittke.
Displaying great courage and loyalty, little mongoose Rikki stands steadfast in the face of danger from two slithering cobras, Nag and Nagaina, to protect his adopted family.
The West Hawai‘i Dance Theatre will present Rikki Tikki Tavi this Saturday, April 29, at 4 p.m. in the Kahilu Theatre.
In-person tickets are available now, or watch from home on Kahilu.TV with On-Demand viewing.
