Based on the famous novel Don Quixote de la Mancha, by Miguel de Cervantes, the ballet is known for its demanding choreography and technical wizardry. Don Quixote is a marriage of traditional ballet and Spanish dance -- full of “heat,” firelight and thrills.
A Saint Louis Ballet Company Production. Choreography by Gen Horiuchi.
Artistic Director Gen Horiuchi brings the classic holiday tale The Nutcracker to life with the talents of the professional ballet dancers of Saint Louis Ballet.
First performed in St. Petersburg, Russia more than 100 years ago, it is based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s 1816 tale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” Horiuchi’s version, on the vast Touhill Performing Arts Center stage, incorporates spectacular effects such as glitter, smoke and pyrotechnics and welcomes the holidays in grand style.
Performance times are Thu., 7 pm.; Fri.-Sat., 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Sun., 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.; Mon., 2:30 p.m.; and Tue., 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Often considered the finest achievement of the classical ballet, The Sleeping Beauty is set to the music of Pyotr Illyich Tchaikowski with the original choreography of Marius Petipa.
Lose yourself in the soaring music as the premier danseur, prima ballerina and corps de ballet tell the tale of royal intrigue, love and passion in a magical kingdom.
This event will be performed at 7:30 p.m. in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall on the River Campus of Southeast Missouri State University.
