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

The description did not mention that it was an hour long amateur benefit. For the parents and friends of the participants it was a lovely afternoon. For those of us who drove 20 miles to see the performance it was "interesting". We loved the multi-cultural aspect but it really had little relation to the much loved "Nutcracker." My ten year old said" It can't be a nutcracker without Clare, the sugar plumb fairies, and Mother Ginger!"
