Combining classical romanticism with a Latin boldness, Ballet Nacional de Cuba is one of the most prestigious ballet companies performing today. The company will present the classic Don Quixote featuring the fearless strength of its dancers and Alicia Alonso’s inventive choreography accompanied by the LA Opera Orchestra. Rarely touring in the U.S., this Music Center debut is an event that can’t be missed.

A mainstay in the Music Center’s dance series, American Ballet Theatre returns with the company’s West Coast premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s The Bright Stream, set to a witty score by Dmitri Shostakovich. Winner of the Critics’ Circle National Dance Award, the brilliant choreography of this delightful ballet is full of fun, misplaced flirtations, and a slew of disguises. Paired with ABT’s technical precision and undeniable grace, The Bright Stream will leave audiences joyful and invigorated.
