      I was never able to watch the show because it was never broadcasted — very disappointed! Don’t ask for donations when you can’t fulfill your end.

Fierce. Fun. Creative. Bold.
Your new art is HERE.

Ballet Fantastique is great stories, mischievous innovation, all live music—and bold, visionary new dance theater.

Under the direction of mother-daughter Producer-Choreographer team Donna Marisa and Hannah Bontrager, Ballet Fantastique (BFan) creates and premieres genre-defying all original contemporary ballets. BFan's inimitable new works include Cinderella as a rock opera ballet set to 1960's billboard hits, a Roaring 20's Parisian jazz version of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, a Wild West spin on Shakespeare’s As You Like It, the first-ever authorized ballet version of Zorro® with the LA-based band Incendio and virtuoso violinist-composer Kim Angelis, and the biblical story of Esther as a rock gospel ballet with the UO Gospel Singers.

Ballet Fantastique has forged new cross-disciplinary collaborations with sculptors, choirs, opera and soloist vocalists, symphony and chamber orchestras, literary and visual artists, actors, break dancers, circus artists, and composers. Ballet Fantastique is proud to be the first new Resident Company at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts in over a decade.

BFan has been heralded “a bold, cross-disciplinary dance company” (Eugene Weekly) “imaginative geniuses” (Portland Monthly Magazine), “not your grandmother’s Swan Lake” (Register-Guard), and "a company to watch" (Eugene Magazine).

Get ready for ballet like you've never seen it before. We'll see you soon.
