The Sorcerer's Apprentice and The Planets, two ballet classics, come to the Rockville Civic Ballet. Most famous for its inclusion in Disney's Fantasia and inspired by Goethe's poem, Paul Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice comes to life through dance as the Rockville Civic Ballet tells this story of the wizard's assistant whose amateur spells wreak havoc. One of the key developers of modern dance, Anthony Tudor interprets the solar system in The Planets. Set to Gustav Holst's orchestral suite, The Planets brings to life the character of each of the planets in a series of stylistically varied sections that capture the mysteries of the cosmos.

Everything old is new again with love affairs, betrayal, deception and a battle of the sexes, all conjured with contagious laughter, flowing champagne and a classic score.
Composed non-stop in forty-two 'nights of veritable rapture' this is the younger Strauss's most celebrated and popular operetta - intoxicatingly melodious and exuberant. Mistaken identities, flirtations at a masked ball, elegant frivolities and confusions of all kinds provide a hilarious vehicle for some of the most captivating music ever written. A blissful show. The Overture is one of the most popular ever written, with five of the best tunes woven into a framework of the great 'Fledermaus Waltz'.
