Ballet Arizona Juan Gabriel
October 26 @ 7:00 pm - October 29 @ 5:30 pm$35
Ballet Arizona presents the return of Juan Gabriel from Oct. 26 to Oct. 29 at Symphony Hall in Phoenix. Ballet Arizona’s Artistic Director Ib Andersen will bring the music of Juan Gabriel, lovingly known to fans as “Juanga,” to life in a ballet that is sure to capture the attention of every audience member.
This moving ballet will transport viewers back in time to Juanga’s impassioned performance at Bellas Artes, utilizing colorful costumes and dynamic choreography. Juan Gabriel incorporates the musician’s poetic lyrics and musical themes to bring a new appreciation to the emotional authenticity of this Mexican-born legend, reflecting the unique vibrancy of El Divo de Juarez.
In addition to stunning choreography and a beautiful musical score, Carla Fernández, a Mexico City-based designer and fashion house, masterfully designed costumes that preserve and revitalize the textile legacy of Indigenous and mestizo communities of Mexico. Fernández ensured sustainability and equity through manual production methods, demonstrating that fashion can be both innovative and progressive.
Ticket prices for Juan Gabriel start at $35, with discounts offered for seniors, students, military, and groups. Tickets can be purchased by calling 602.381.1096 or visiting balletaz.org.
