The young, talented dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

My husband and I are trying to better understand the culture of Asia. We were eager to see modern dance. We have found what they were looking. High skill, hard work, training and professionalism of each musician, without exception (12) requires me to put the highest score. Music .... not mellifluous. My husband and I jumped from their seats when the music suddenly burst into the room. Perhaps, the effect was conceived in advance, but annoying.
Acclaimed Taiwanese choreographer Lin Hwai-Min founded Cloud Gate II to foster new talent and showcase the next generation of Taiwanese dance. Dance Europe describes this innovative ensemble as, “a vibrant Company.” Cloud Gate II’s portfolio of work is celebrated around the world as some of the most innovative and creative contemporary dance to come out of Asia in decades. At the forefront of modern dance, Cloud Gate II dares to take beautiful risks that produce equally stunning outcomes.
