Description

The Washington Ballet (TWB) will kick off its lively 2007-2008 Family Series with Where the Wild Things Are at Washington’s historic Warner Theatre. The ballet will bring to life Maurice Sendak’s best-selling story through innovative choreography by TWB Artistic Director Septime Webre, a specially commissioned score, and dazzling 10-foot-tall puppets. “I am thrilled to be returning to this classic tale by my good friend and collaborator Maurice Sendak,” says Webre. “This program is sure to capture the imaginations of audiences young and old.”

Preceding the show will be a 30-minute “Kids Gala!”
