$65 / $55 / $40 / $25
Fri., February 14 - 8:00 PM
This Valentine's evening the renowned Moscow Festival Ballet brings two of the most romantic classical works to the Valley Performing Arts Center. Often described as a "romantic reverie," Chopiniana portrays a dream-world where ballerinas bathed in moonlight dance around a young poet. The enchanting oeuvre is realized through the music of Chopin and the choreography of Mikhail Fokine. Shakespeare's tragic love story is beautifully danced to Tchaikovsky's majestic score and illuminated with brilliant choreography and radiant costumes in the grand tradition of Russian ballet – simply breathtaking!
