INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – On Monday July 24, Sierra Nevada Ballet took the stage of the Trepp Amphitheater as part of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival to perform an original ballet based on the novel by Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn. 

Rosine Bena, Artistic Director of the Sierra Nevada Ballet wrote the stage adaption The Last Unicorn in 1989. 34 years later Bena resurrected the choreographed story, with the assistance of her muse and daughter, Ananda Bena-Weber.

A true family production, even Bena’s late parents, Edward and Anne Bena, had a hand in creating, directing and producing Rosine’s original creation.
