A Winter Fairy TaleA WINTER FAIRY TALE

A magician's magical book helps bring to life a Russian New Year's Eve forest fairy tale, filled with sweet animals, animated toys and other fairyland creatures. These charming forest friends join forces to rescue a little bunny who has been kidnapped by the wicked bat queen. Exquisite dancing, set to the music of Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov, is enhanced by gorgeous custom-made costumes and lovely settings which add up to an evening of stunning holiday ballet for your family.

On a snowy evening, the Bat Queen's kidnapping of a little bunny disrupts the forest creatures' Wintertime celebration. With the help of the Magician and a beautiful Rose Maiden, the bunny is restored to its family. Santa, the Snow Maiden and an enchanting Fairy treat you to the magical finale of an exquisite celebration that includes joyful Spanish dancers and bright Chinese dolls who come alive to help celebrate the bunny's return.

Last year's similar—but not identical—program at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts was a great success. You can see pictures on our website or Facebook page:

If you saw it last year, come and see what a year more of growth and training can do for our students! If this is your first year, make this your family tradition of holiday ballet. Children should be able to sit through the entire performance and each child must have his or her own ticket.
