Trey McIntyre Project Fall Performance


In a Bohemian rhapsody of epic ballet proportions, world-renowned Boise-based dance company Trey McIntyre Project takes the Morrison Center stage Saturday, Oct. 26, to the glam-rock stylings of Queen.

Every year, TMP debuts a new work exclusively for Boise audiences before unleashing it on the wider world. The premiere of "Mercury Half-Life" unveils some of Trey McIntyre's most extensive, exuberant choreography to date.

It's killer Queen. Dynamite as a laser beam. Guaranteed to blow your mind. Spanning excerpts from 16 Queen songs over a rollicking 50 minutes, "Mercury Half-Life" is royally brought to life by the hard-bodied talent of all 10 TMP dancers--including tap dancing sequences by sixth-year TMPer Brett Perry, a world-class silver medalist in the genre.

TMP also performs McIntyre's "Pass, Away"--an audience favorite from the spring tour--with all songs written by Richard Strauss and performed by The Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, Jessye Norman and Kurt Masur.

Make a champion night of it for $100 per person, which includes a three-course dinner with wine pairings at Red Feather Lounge or Le Cafe de Paris, a show ticket, VIP parking and an invitation to the TMP afterparty.
