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
From her early days as Rudolf Nureyev’s protégé and star of the Paris Opera Ballet to her current reign as principal guest artist at London’s Royal Ballet, Sylvie Guillem has electrified the dance world with her superhuman virtuosity and dazzling elasticity. Perhaps the world’s most celebrated ballerina, she has scored memorable triumphs with many of today’s most gifted choreographers. In an exciting exploration of the boundaries between two great classical dance forms, Indian classical kathak dance and ballet, Guillem teams up with renowned British Asian choreographer and dancer Akram Khan performing both solos and duos, accompanied by live music. Rooted in creation stories and myths, Sacred Monsters examines the notion of male and female energies as forces in opposition and in harmony with one another.
