Originally made into a ballet in 1900, by Marius Petipa, with music by Riccardo Drigo, Harlequinade follows Harlequin, and his lover, Columbina, as they outwit Columbina's father, Cassander. He wishes Columbine to marry a rich suitor, so he keeps her locked up inside the house, away from Harlequin. He entrusts the key to his servant, Pierrot, Columbina's friend, Pierretta, comes to the house and steals the key away from Pierrot. She unlocks the house and lets Harlequin in, allowing the two lovers to reunite and more dancing to ensue.

Harlequinade has long been a "forgotten" ballet, with only a few
restorations within the past hundred years. However, Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida's production of the ballet represents the original storyline, and upholds the classical style in which it was first choreographed, while still maintaining a fresh and exciting atmosphere.

The program also includes Divertissements of Sleeping Beauty.

15% off Early Bird special for GROUPS and 10% Early Bird good thru the end of day on December 5, 2017.
