A Tchaikovsky Mixtape

Think of it as Tchaikovsky’s greatest hits, all in one night. The prestigious State Ballet of Russia, under the tutelage of awardwinning dancer Nikolay Anokhin, highlights excerpts from the most renowned works from one of ballet’s most prominent composers. With scenes from Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky’s Spectacular represents the composer’s very best. These works are brought to life in this full-scale, two-act production by 50 of Russia’s most promising ballet stars. Watch as the court jester, the black swan, and even the lovable nutcracker solider leap, turn, and curtsy. Because the company delivers bits and pieces of Tchaikovsky’s work, this is a great opportunity for ballet novices to experience the majesty of one of the most brilliant composers of the past 200 years. This enchanting afternoon of classical ballet gems begins at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Parker cutline knockout3Month XX–Month XX, 2008 browardpalmbeach.com New Times Broward-palm beach | Contents | pulp | news | Night+Day | Stage | Art | Film | dish | Music | Playhouse, 707 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale.
