Christian ballet company tours western Colorado

By Press Release


Ballet Magnificat, America's premier Christian ballet company, will present "Deliver Us!" at the Delta Center for Performing Arts Saturday, Oct. 29. The performance begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at ltickets.com, in Hotchkiss at the Delta County Federal Credit Union in Hotchkiss, in Delta at Good Vibrations Books and Gifts and Doghouse Espresso, or by calling Linda Dysart at 835-3999.

Experience one of Ballet Magnificat's most popular and longest touring ballets, "Deliver Us!" Set to the music of Dreamworks' "The Prince of Egypt," this riveting story will jump off the stage and into your life.

Under the blazing Egyptian sun within the shadow of the pyramids, the enslaved Jewish people cry out for a deliverer. One man, Moses, challenges Pharaoh and leads the people to freedom -- a vivid prophetic picture pointing to the Easter story of what Jesus Christ did on Calvary.

"Why tell fairy tales when you can bring to the stage such an alluring story of courage and faith that will challenge us to the core?" said Jiri Voborsky, choreographer of "Deliver Us!"

"Deliver Us!" was first performed in 2001 and has since been presented in Asia, Europe, North and South America and the Middle East for countless audience members.

Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children and seniors. Ticket prices will be $20 at the door.

Shows are also scheduled in Fruita, Oct. 27 at the Victory Life Church, 2066 Highway 6 & 50 and in Montrose, Oct. 28 at the Montrose Pavilion, 1800 Pavilion Drive. Those performances also begin at 7 p.m.
