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.

Coppélia - American Ballet Theatre

Saturday, May 31, 2014
2:00 pm

The perfect introduction to ballet, Coppélia brings alive the comic wit of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved tale with storybook sets and Delibes’ tuneful score. The entire family will delight as the magical world of Dr. Coppelius’ workshop reveals his mechanical toys and imaginative inventions. His remarkably lifelike doll, Coppélia, even attracts the friendly attention of Swanilda and, to Swanilda’s dismay, her fiancé Franz’s more amorous intentions. All ends well, though, as mistaken identities and misplaced affections are revealed, and our hero Franz returns to his true love in this joyous ballet.


Cast: Wilkins; Lane, Simkin

The epitome of Romantic ballet, this heart-rending tale of unrequited love, remorse and forgiveness perfectly fuses music, movement and drama. The role of Giselle requires an exquisite stylist with daring dramatic and technical skills to create a compelling portrait of the innocent, yet ultimately noble, village maiden. In this universally acclaimed production, ABT's unrivalled roster of international ballet stars brings Giselle's mystery and ethereal beauty vividly to life.
