A Night at the Paris Opera and More!

As they enter the tail end of their barn-burning 2013–14 season—which has seen the troupe receive a National Endowment for the Arts grant and company member Will Smith honored for his choreography—the Manassas Ballet Theatre embarks on a tour de France. Opening the evening and welcoming audiences to the City of Lights are selected music and dances from the opera Faust, with accompaniment by vocalist Mark Luna. The first act also features Laboro, a world premiere by Smith that incorporates live, onstage paintings of environmental pop art by DC's Katya Krupko. In the second act, the company takes on Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo's Gaite Parisienne, which includes such iconically French ingredients as a can-can and a skunk that keeps hitting on all the dancers.

Manassas Ballet Theatre

Manassas Ballet Theatre is like a cerberus, with three heads each working together to spread the love of dance. The most prominent head is the ballet company itself: 17 dancers who put on four series of public performances annually at the Hylton Performing Arts Center's dramatically modern hall. Then there's the Manassas Ballet Theatre Orchestra, which provides live accompaniment to each of these performances. Last is the Manassas Ballet Academy, which uses the Vaganova methodology to teach college-bound students and future pro dancers to express themselves via movement instead of snappy catch phrases.
