A lively ballet adaptation of renowned author Beatrix Potter’s whimsical fairy tales, Peter Rabbit’s Ballet features Dance Wisconsin’s nimble-footed, local dancers acting out four of Potter’s charming stories, including the tales of Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, and Jeremy Fisher. Watch dancing ducks, butterflies, kittens, and vegetables and their graceful footwork through the kaleidoscopic fables of the eponymous rabbit and his band of colorfully costumed friends. A lively score, lighthearted humor, and thoughtfully crafted storytelling combine to enchant audience members of all ages, inspiring them to jeté and glissade to their cars and demand gracefully dancing vegetables at local restaurants.
