Tresemble + Onium Ballet Project

Some of the finest ballet dancers in Hawaii come together with the Tresemble to delight music and dance lovers. Copland’s beloved work is set with WWII-era costumes, and the Martinu ballet, in contrast, features kid-friendly dancing utensils in costume.

Bohuslav Martinu – “Kitchen Revue”
Aaron Copland – “Appalachian Spring”

Memorial Day weekend is a fitting time for our Sunday music + dance matinee for all ages. The stunning music and choreography of  “Appalachian Spring” are complemented by costumes of the WWII-era, while the costumes for “Kitchen Revue” are whimsical dancing utensils.

The Onium Ballet Project has regularly collaborated with Chamber Music Hawaii, creating new original ballets to many works, including Bohuslav Martinu’s La Revue de Cuisine and Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring. The group is led by Artistic Director Minou Lallemand, who was born in Colombia and grew up in New York City. She trained at the Neubert Ballet Institute and graduated from the New York High School of the Performing Arts while on scholarship at the Joffrey Ballet School, and enjoyed an international performing career. She now lives in Honolulu and focuses on teaching and choreography.
