Ballet Hawaii Presents Peter Pan
Choreographed by The Washington Ballet’s Septime Webre with music by Carmen DeLeone, Peter Pan is Fun for the Entire Family with Ballet Hawaii
Take a high-flying adventure to Neverland with Septime Webre's dazzling Peter Pan! A swashbuckling coming of age tale that pits Peter and the Lost Boys against Captain Hook and his outrageous band of pirates, this whimsical adventure is told through vibrant dance. Peter Pan is a story about growing up that never seems to grow old. Returning to dance in the Ballet Hawaii shows are Luis R. Torres, Maki Onuki, Morgann Rose, Jonathan Jordan, and Derek Daniels, among many others.

The Washington Post praises Peter Pan: “To witness the gasp of astonishment and delight when Peter comes blazing through the nursery window with the aid of his well-hidden harness is the production's greatest reward.”
