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

Following their rapturously received, sold-out run in New York City in 2006, the internationally renowned Argentinean dancer Guillermina Quiroga and her thrilling company return to the U.S. in their first North American tour.
Best known in this country for her stunning work with the smash hits Tango x2, Forever Tango and Tango Argentino, the classically trained Quiroga is one of Argentina’s premier tango dancers, hailed by The New York Times for her “lyrical grace,” “incredibly deft, snappy footwork” and “spectacular feats (a leg held behind her head as she turned, astonishing backbends).”
Intertwined with some of Argentina’s best poetry, music, and sensuous dance, Tango, Historias Breves brings us closer to stories of life, love and passion and delves deeply into the fundamental role destiny plays. Quiroga and her partner Claudio Villagra will be joined by three couples and the group Los Cosos de al Lao, led by conductor and bandoneon player Gustavo Paglia.
