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

This was a first-rate performance with both the instrumentation and the dancing being superb. There was incredible variety with dances from different areas of mostly the Balkan pennisula. The male dancers were very athletic and performed entertaining feats that were in the "impossible" realm. The female dancers were very graceful. The small on-stange orchestra was composed of extremely talented musicians who were obviously having a lot of fun.
During the past 40 years, Frula has given more than 7,000 performances throughout the world. In the United States alone, Frula has toured 27 times, appearing in the best halls, such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Presenting a rich and colorful program, Frula performs folk dances from all regions of the former Yugoslavia, as well as from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Albania. Breathtaking technique transforms folk into a theatrical show. Dazzling authentic costumes, athletic prowess, cultural pride, and the performers’ inner joy, combined with musicians, dancers, singers, and technical expertise, proving that Frula is an exciting perpetuator of cultural heritage.
