“The New York Theatre Ballet…turned out to be one of those shows that are so good they seem worth the price of the entire series of five attractions.” —Sacramento Bee 

Description

This new one-hour rollicking romp takes the whole family on an antic-filled journey — simple enough for small children, sophisticated enough for the most discerning adult. Inspired by classic nursery rhymes, this tongue-in-cheek, madcap ballet features such beloved characters as Jack and Jill, Miss Muffet, Jack Sprat and his plump wife, Old King Cole, and The Three Blind Mice.

Set design is by Derek Stenborg and costumes are by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the Metropolitan Opera’s resident costume designer. The music, an original work created for this production, is composed by Vladimir Shinov.

Created by Keith Michael, choreographer of NYTB’s delightful, high-spirited Alice-in-Wonderland Follies.
