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

I'm not an expert in Flamenco but this was the best ensemble I've ever seen. I,and I know the audience, loved every minute of it. The dancers were precise and often mesmorizing with stirring accompanyment from four musicians. They deserved their standing ovation.
Quotes & Highlights
“If you only see flamenco once in your life, make it this!” —The Independent (London)
See a video of Paco Peña and his company on YouTube.
As a guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor, Paco Peña embodies both the authenticity and innovation of flamenco and has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form. _Flamenco Vivo! _transmits to the audience the compelling nature of a range of flamenco rhythms, from the almost tribal, trance-inducing quality of the “alboreá” to the razor-sharp complexity of the “bulería.”
