Program III: The Fairy's Kiss

Program III: The Fairy's Kiss

A major coup: A new narrative ballet by today’s most in-demand classical choreographer, Alexei Ratmansky. Hans Christian Andersen’s story of The Ice-Maiden inspired what is perhaps Stravinsky’s loveliest score – a tribute to Tchaikovsky. Music that George Balanchine so loved that he set ballets to it three times!

With a large cast, striking new costumes and visual effects, and a powerful, moving story, The Fairy’s Kiss is a superb successor to Symphonic Dances, Ratmansky’s 2013 first triumphant new ballet for MCB.
