Branford Green Performance

Branford Green Performance

Artistic Director, Lisa Sanborn, is excited to announce that New Haven Ballet will perform on the Branford Green, Saturday, June 29, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. This performance is FREE and open to the public!

The performance will include:

The Sleeping Beauty

The Sleeping Beauty ballet was adapted from the 1697 Charles Perrault tale, “The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood.” Tchaikovsky wrote the music and long time collaborator, Marius Petipa, choreographed the dances. It was first presented at the Mariinksy Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, on January 15, 1890. While received favorably, especially when compared with Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, Swan Lake, it was not a resounding success. Today these dances have grown measurably in popularity and are performed by leading ballet companies around the world.

New Haven Ballet Company will perform The Sleeping Beauty Prologue: The Christening, in which the Fairies of the kingdom have been invited to be present at the christening of Princess Aurora. Each of the fairies bestows on the princess a special gift by way of a dance.

Peter Rabbit

New Haven Ballet premiered Artistic Director Lisa Sanborn’s all-new children’s ballet, Peter Rabbit, at the Shubert Theatre New Haven on May 18, 2019. This charming children’s ballet brings to life the delightful characters from Beatrix Potter’s beloved stories of Peter Rabbit. You will meet Peter, a young bunny who forages for vegetables in Mr. McGregor’s garden (much to Mr. McGregor’s dismay), and makes friends with Miss Potter (Mr. McGregor’s lovely neighbor), in addition to many forest dwellers. After Mr. McGregor suffers an injury, he has a vision in which Peter befriends and guides him home with the help of forest animals.
