Based on Miguel de Cervantes’ sweeping tale of romance and chivalry, the knight-errant of la Mancha, Don Quixote, and his devoted squire, Sancho Panza, are positively heroic when it comes to aiding the spirited maiden Kitri and her charming amour. From the bravura dancing of the fiery toreador Espada to the colorful caravan of gypsies, the stage explodes with one show-stopping performance after another in this feast of choreographic fireworks.

Romeo and Juliet – American Ballet Theatre

Wednesday, June 12, 2013
7:30 pm

Sir Kenneth MacMillan's masterful interpretation of Shakespeare's enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT's signature productions. Against a sumptuous setting in Renaissance Italy, MacMillan weaves a dance tapestry rich in character nuance and sensuality, and Sergei Prokofiev's instantly recognizable music underscores the lyric beauty and passion of this beloved ballet's star-crossed lovers.

Cast: Wilkins; Reyes, Cornejo

Sylvia — American Ballet Theatre

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
7:30 pm

A ravishing fantasy set amid verdant forests and majestic temples, Sir Frederick Ashton's mythological love story unites the huntress Sylvia and a lovelorn shepherd with the divine intervention of the deity Eros. The splendid score by Leo Delibes was so admired by Tchaikovsky that he purportedly declared: had he known the music existed at the time, he would never have composed Swan Lake!
