We ate a cross the street at Claim Jumpers and it was an easy walk to the theater from there. Dress ranged from casual to dressy.

Lovely meal at T'jevs? Mexican fusion across street. Also pre-order your drinks, saved us time during intermission! Just remember which bar, you order from.

Quotes & Highlights

“Although immensely complex, the work is gripping at first sight, and reveals the quality of a company whose every member shares in the overwhelming total effect.” —The Independent

Description

You’ll see why with their ballet, Nijinksy, which celebrates the life and legend of one of the most exceptional artists of all time.

Vaslav Nijinsky, the “God of the Dance,” set a new standard technically as well as expressively, and achieved unparalleled fame and popularity.

As a choreographer, he created ballets that both mesmerized and shocked audiences.

Ultimately, though, his story was one of tragedy, as his genius gave way to schizophrenia, and his world disintegrated into madness.

Dance magazine

hails Nijinsky as “the most ambitious project in the ballet world in recent years.”

Hamburg’s Orange County Performing Arts Center debut will mark a rare U.S. appearance and West Coast premiere for the company.
