CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF REGIONAL TOURING

105 MINS INCLUDING INTERVAL

The Regional Tour returns with a special gala performance to celebrate 40 years of spreading the joy of dance across the nation.

This dazzling program will feature key works from four decades of touring, including excerpts from two of the world’s most loved ballets, The Sleeping Beauty and Don Quixote, and two rarely seen ballets, Spring Waters and Poems.

A highlight of this tour will be Swan Lake Variations, a never-before-seen piece choreographed by former Artistic Director David McAllister. It’s a last gift to regional audiences from this beloved luminary and a tribute to the beauty of Tchaikovsky.

Join the celebration in a town near you.
