Huntsville Ballet opens its 60th season with the much-anticipated return to the stage of Artistic Director, Phillip Otto’s original ballet, Amore. In 2019, Otto commissioned local composer, Jackson Love to create the score for the now acclaimed ballet whose individual movements - diamonds, blue topaz, gold, and pearls symbolize love. The ballet was inspired by the exquisite work of Huntsville’s own renowned jewelry artist, Kathy Chan. Dr. Chan created the award-winning Amore necklace in 1986 using 197 carats of blue topaz pierced with an arrow of diamonds. Each performance will conclude with what has become an audience favorite - the opportunity to meet and ask questions of the dancers and directors.
