The Paramount Chamber Players joins forces with Highlands Ballet Company to present the world premiere of Evelyn Pursley-Kopitzke’s Magic Butterfly, a brand-new ballet, set in Africa. The ballet tells the story of a child who has been rewarded with an adventurous magical journey through Africa because she decided not to collect (kill) butterflies anymore. The music was expanded from African Vignettes, two 15-minute tone poems also by Pursley-Kopitzke, to an approximately 80-minute work for mixed chamber ensemble. Magic Butterfly is a world premiere of a work written, prepared and performed by local community talent.

In a first of its kind collaboration Highlands Ballet Company joins forces with The Paramount Chamber Players and local composer Evelyn Pursley-Kopitzke to present Magic Butterfly.  Inspired by Pursley-Kopitzke's childhood spent in Africa, this exciting new venture tells the story of young Eve who is rewarded with a magical adventure with an enchanted butterfly.
