Event Dates and Times
Narrative dances are the focus of this program, which features three works from Balanchine: the early Prodigal Son, based on the Biblical tale of forgiveness and redemption; the whimsical storybook pas de deux The Steadfast Tin Soldier; and the solo Pavane, imbued with a subtle sense of loss. Returning to the repertory is Christopher Wheeldon’s joyful 2003 ballet Carnival of the Animals, a family-friendly dance featuring fanciful costumes and settings by Jon Morrell, inspired by the tale of a boy whose imagination turns all his companions into animals, with a text written by the actor John Lithgow.
