Mariinsky Ballet’s production of
THE LITTLE HUMPBACKED HORSE
Music by Rodion Shchedrin
Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
 
with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra

An institution in Russia since 1783, the Mariinsky Ballet, formerly known as the Kirov Ballet, is one of the oldest and most revered ballet companies in the world. For over two centuries they’ve created cutting-edge dance, a tradition that continues to this day — The Wall Street Journal calls their dancing “otherworldly,” while The Washington Post calls the troupe “unfailingly elegant.” This season, the acclaimed company brings to life Alexei Ratmansky’s contemporary take on a beloved Russian fairy tale. Bursting with bright colors, dynamic characters and stunning choreography, The Little Humpbacked Horse follows the adventures of a young boy and his magical horse. Bring the whole family and prepare to be whisked away to a fantastical world when this charming production makes its premiere at The Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington D.C.
