Bring on the Dancing Horses

As they leap across the stage, executing perfect pirouettes and high kicks, it is impossible not to be in awe of these leggy dancers. Exuding grace and strength, the “World Famous” Lipizzaner Stallions are marching into town to celebrate their 36th anniversary season. You may remember the Lipizzaners from the 1963 Disney film, Miracle of the White Stallions, which depicts the dramatic WWII rescue operation, ordered by General George S. Patton and conducted by the US Army’s Second Cavalry -- an act that saved the horses from certain extinction. Today, the dozen stallions on tour will perform an equestrian ballet, with horse and rider uniting in perfect form during the intricate dressage, and will take your breath away with a series of aerial leaps called Airs Above the Ground.
Sat., Jan. 21, 2 & 7:30 p.m.
