D.C. Ballet Brings Excerpts of ‘Sleepy Hollow’ to Smithsonian


CBS DC

WASHINGTON — The Washington Ballet is giving museum visitors a sneak peek at the company’s new production “Sleepy Hollow” this weekend.

The company is adapting Washington Irving’s ghost story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” into a ballet for its newest production opening in February. This production is the third in a series of new ballets that are based on American literature.

On Saturday, the dancers will perform excerpts of the new production at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The museum’s Hudson River landscapes, Revolutionary War battle scenes and colonial-era portraiture helped inspire the set, costumes, puppetry and lighting design for the ballet.

The museum program, including discussions about the new ballet’s creation, is free and open to the public.

“Sleepy Hollow” runs at the Kennedy Center Feb. 18 through Feb. 22.

The esteemed Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” will embark on a seven-city U.S. tour beginning in Milwaukee on Tuesday, March 31. Ten performances will showcase the classic fantasy ballet “Swan Lake,” featuring the renowned music by Tchaikovsky and an impressive cast of some of the world’s best dancers. The Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” continues to captivate audiences worldwide, adhering to the signature aspects of Russian ballet as a whole: true expressivity, dramatic presentation and impeccable technical presentation.

“We are thrilled to bring the Saint Petersburg ‘Russian Ballet’ to the U.S. and believe the audience will enjoy themselves,” said Ernesto Texo with Texoart Cultural Productions.

Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” performers are graduates of Saint Petersburg’s prestigious Vaganova Ballet Academy, founded in 1738, and continue to perform on the oldest stages in Saint Petersburg. Consistently delighting sold-out audiences worldwide with world-class dancers and dazzling costumes, the Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” continues to make international touring a large part of its contribution to furthering Russian dance and culture.

Created in 1990 by the family of professional ballet dancers, The Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” dynasty is more than 100 years old. Artistic Director Alexander Bruskin is a former soloist of the famed Kirov Ballet, a former classmate of the renowned Mikhail Baryshnikov, and a former student of legendary ballet instructor Alexander Pushkin.

The Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” has successfully conducted more than 50 tours worldwide in countries including Japan, England, Ireland, Spain, the U.S., France and Germany among many others, and has participated in 10 international ballet festivals. Today, the repertoire includes such masterpieces as “Swan Lake,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “The Nutcracker” and “Don Quixote.” Each ballet is performed in its original choreography, and the Saint Petersburg State “Russian Ballet” perceives its main mission to be the preservation of such choreographic authenticity.
