Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School is honored to again host Ballet Magnificat. This year, America’s premier Christian ballet company will present “Deliver Us.”
“Deliver Us” is Ballet Magnificat’s most popular and longest-touring ballet. In this riveting performance, the enslaved Jewish people cry out for a deliverer. One man, Moses, challenges Pharaoh and leads the people to freedom.
Sponsored in part by the Melva S. McIllwaine Guest Artist Endowment Fund, the performance is set for 7 p.m. Nov. 4 at Good Shepherd Chapel on the Lancaster campus. Tickets are available now and can be purchased at lbc.edu/events.
“Why tell fairy tales when you can bring to the stage such an alluring [true] story of courage and faith that will challenge us to the core?” said “Deliver Us” choreographer Jiri Voborsky.
“Deliver Us” first took the stage in 2001 and has been performed before enthusiastic audiences in Asia, Europe, North and South America, and the Middle East.
Hailed by the Dallas Morning News as “sublime beauty” and the “height of professionalism,” the Jackson, Mississippi-based company was founded in 1986 by International Ballet Competition silver-medalist Kathy Thibodeaux and her husband, Keith Thibodeaux, best known as “Little Ricky” from “I Love Lucy.”
