Matadors, gypsies and lively street scenes evoke a storybook Spain, with nonstop dancing to Ludwig Minkus' melodic score. The mixed rep shows include works by Fokine, (Les Sylphides, Gomes (Aftereffect) and Ashton (The Dream). For over 70 years, American Ballet Theatre has wowed audiences everywhere with their passion, innovation and athleticism.

I loved this show! The acrobatics and theatrics were amazing. My only real complaint was that they didn't tie in the theme of cinema very well - it was more vaudeville type acts and costumes than anything really having to do with cinema besides costumes. However, seeing it at the Kodak was very cool, and I would recommend it to anyone!
