The talented young 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

Enjoyed the very good Flamenco singer and the musicians of both groups. Flamenco dancers,( incorrectly noted in the program as Prima Tango Dance Company) were better trained with more variation in dances than Tango dancers. Could find little variation in tango numbers and when the purported coming together of flamenco & tango produced only more tango, it was a let down. Certainly Tango/Juan could have added some flamenco elements and made it more interesting. It was overpriced even at Goldstar discount and definitely a no-win when the travel/wait time is longer than the performance.
This is the history of an unexpected love. The relentless search for love that we all seek from the moment of birth. This is the story of two cultures and two worlds, coming together, defying codes and cultures of their ancestors. Flamenco and Tango, through the eternal drama of life’s passion renew themselves once more. From the agony of solitude two beings recognize each other and their souls join, despite the limits imposed by their respective cultures. She is the Flamenco, passion, fury and happiness. He is the Tango, exuding emotion and pride. Together they transform nostalgia into love, sadness into joy, and darkness into light. This is a story of love portrayed through Flamenco and Tango.
