Set in an enchanted toy shop, this charming, family-friendly, one-act ballet, centers on the love story between two can-can dolls incorporating elements of comedy, mime, as well as classical choreography. Audiences of all ages are sure to enjoy the Cossack dolls perform a Russian dance as well as other whimsical characters perform a tarantella and mazurka.
“La Boutique Fantasque” (The Magical Toyshop) was first presented at the Alhambra Theatre in London on June 5, 1919 by the internationally famous Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. The ballet was originally choreographed by Leonide Massine and arranged and orchestrated by Ottorino Respighi based on piano pieces by Gioachino Rossini.
