Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Vendetta, A Mafia Story will see its American premiere in Tulsa next March. The synopsis is dramatic and includes a boss woman:
Chicago, 1950’s. Rosalia Carbone’s wedding day is marred by a violent murder, beginning a long standing grudge between infamous rival mob families. When the Godfather, the feared patriarch of the family, is killed in a shootout, an enraged Rosalia takes his place.
Full of red hot emotions like passion, anger and greed and depicted through the beauty of dance, Vendetta is a thrilling show where Broadway meets film noir. Add in a touch of Moulin Rouge and a hint of Vaudeville, plus a lot of humor, and bada-bing! You’re guaranteed a captivating performance.
Tulsa Ballet artistic director Marcello Angelini is also taking steps to feature female costume and lighting designers in the upcoming season, with Julie Duro lighting the company’s Nutcracker. Female choreographers, are also given attention, with Penny Saunders joining the roster via a world premiere coming to the company soon.
