Everyone Deserves a Happy Ending: An Anti-Prop 8 Ballet!


Heather Castillo, a married straight female created this ballet, "Everyone Deserves a Happy Ending", as her last piece for her MFA at UC Irvine. Wish it was a better copy, but it's the first anti-Prop 8 ballet I've ever seen! Incorporating other types of dance as well, it's set to Gershwin's 2nd Rhapsody conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas.

Watch it, in two parts, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. How cute! It's a pity that the resolution was so terrible, so I couldn't see in detail the costumes and dancers.

  2. I love UCI. It is definitely an oasis in a desert of conservative values.

  3. Actually, it's very well done -- sort of in the mold of Mark Morris or Matthew Bourne.
