American Ballet Theatre Dress Rehearsal
More than a dozen FBWE Villagers had the pleasure of watching a dress rehearsal of the American Ballet Theatre in the Kennedy Center, Opera House on April 15. The featured work was Frederick Ashton’s “The Dream” based on Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Every aspect was magical –the set, the costumes, the music, and of course, the dancers, especially Puck, who was lighter than air. The audio commentary enhanced the experience. It was a tutu wonderful afternoon.
