Join The Washington Ballet’s 2012.13 Season, SEDUCTION. Like the Sirens of yore, we are deliberately setting out to tempt you with the most sensuous, sublime and provocative dance in a mix of the new, the recent, the unfamiliar and the classic. The season expands to five subscription programs accented by explorations into classical literature with the world premieres of Hemingway: The Sun Also Rises and David Palmer’s Dangerous Liaison and the company premiere of Michael Pink’s Dracula. On the occasion of the Presidential inauguration, we are planning our first Tour-de-Force gala-style performance program, Stars and Stripes with George Balanchine’s exuberantly patriotic ballet as the centerpiece. You will also experience the company premiere of Elaine Kudo’s neoclassical Opposites Distract, the return of Edwaard Liang’s intoxicating Wunderland, and one of ballet’s most beautifully romantic stories, Cinderella.
Families will be delighted by a wonderful mix of classical ballet with Peter and the Wolf and The Nutcracker, the fairy tale magic of Cinderella, and a special gala performance evening, Stars and Stripes/KIDS, showcasing The Washington Ballet and special guests from the celebrated School of Ballet.
Enticing journeys, irresistible productions and enthralling dance. We encourage you to secure your seats for our ever-popular holiday classic, The Nutcracker to enhance your ballet experience by adding on our exclusive behind-the-scene series, inthewings, to your subscription order.
