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
8:00 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.

Of all the great classics performed by ABT today, Swan Lake remains the quintessential ballet, the one that defines the standards of the Company, tests its dancers and ennobles the spirit of the audience. This romantic fable of ill-fated passion, dreamlike transformation and ultimate forgiveness is set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.  With breathtaking choreography and visually magnificent sets evoking a Renaissance court, the fabled lake of the swans rises into view, inspiring awe for generations to come.
