Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes: The American Premiere

Buy Tickets $25 - $90 $60 - $120

A tale of passion and obsession, Matthew Bourne's stylish and audacious new ballet The Red Shoes was exalted as "a feast for the eyes" by The Guardian, while The Daily Telegraph praised its magical qualities, declaring it "blissful." Bourne's thrilling adaptation of the Oscar-winning 1948 film (which was itself based on a tale by Hans Christian Andersen) is the story of a ballerina forced to choose between an affair of the heart and her rapturous love of dance. Featuring music written by composer Bernard Hermann for Citizen Kane and three other classic films, you won't want to miss The Red Shoes when it enjoys its American premiere at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.

Washington Ballet: Russian Masters

Buy Tickets $42 - $68 $68.40 - $96.90

Far more than just a celebrated dance form, ballet has been nothing short of a national obsession in Russia for centuries. For this celebration of the Russian Masters at The Kennedy Center, the Washington Ballet will present four masterworks by Fokine, Ratmansky, Petipa and Balanchine that trace the roots of classical ballet, exploring how these choreographers have shaped and influenced our art form over the last 175 years (think of it as a crash course in Russian ballet). You'll see Fokine's Les Sylphides, a romantic reverie featuring music by Chopin that's widely considered to be the first ballet simply about mood and dance, and Ratmansky's Boléro, a meditation on modern society and its pressures set to Ravel. Then it's time for one of the most famous pas de deux of classical ballet repertoire (from Petipa's Le Corsaire) and a Biblical tale told through gorgeous movement: George Balanchine's mesmerizing Prodigal Son.
