This was a wonderful event. My daughter who is 11 enjoyed it immensely, as did I. The choreographer came out before the production, along with the dancers, and explained in colorful and imaginative detail the pas de deux, and the nature of ballet. The dancers performed to his cues, and then he invited all children 12 and under to come up on the stage. He interacted well with them as well as the audience. It gave the performance such a warm and welcoming feel, and it was a terrific treat for the entire audience. The ballet was superb, just right in content, style, and length of time. It was fresh and lovely! Highly recommended!
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!”
