Ballet Under the stars

Annabelle Gentling, Howler Staff Writer

The sunset was stunning and the stars shone brightly over Scissortail Park as the Oklahoma City Ballet performed in an open amphitheater during Ballet Under the Stars, a free event at Scissortale Park on Saturday, Sept. 17. 

Ballet Under the Stars was an incredible night; many Oklahomans came out to support the ballet company. The park was packed with families and friends who spread out picnic blankets to watch the dancers. There weren’t any food trucks around or local places that served food, so many people packed picnic baskets and sat on blankets under the stars.

There were different variations from classical ballet to modern work, such as Swan Lake, Cinderella-and company modern variations. 

Scissortail park has a unique experience for all, hosting the Arts, Farmers Market and more. If you want more, information, go to Scissortail Park’s website to learn more about events. If you want to learn more about the ballet, go to the Oklahoma City Ballet website
