The Onium Ballet Project and Chamber Music Hawaii combine once again Sunday at Paliku Theatre to give the Windward side a new, contemporary ballet showcase based on classical technique.

(Their Appalachian Spring played to sold-out houses at Paliku and at UH-Hilo two years ago.)

The curtain will rise at 4 p.m. on the Paliku stage to present two short ballets and Oboe Quintet. The ballets are Trapeze by Sergei Prokofiev and Clocks by Miguel del Aguila, the latter being the first-ever performance of the work with original choreography by Minau Lallemand, Onium’s artistic director.

The Oboe Quintet by British composer Sir Arnold Bax features CMH’s J.Scott Janusch and the Galliard String Quartet.

Tickets cost $35 and $30 in advance, or $5 more at the door. For reservations and details, call 489-5038.
