The Grand Pas Classique from Paquita blends Spanish flair with exquisite classicism to create one of the beautiful and enduring masterpieces in the ballet repertoire. With its effervescent mix of challenging choreography and expressive artistry, Paquita remains one of ballet’s most beloved showcases for dancers and audiences alike. The Young Lady and The Hooligan is based on Vladimir Mayakovsky’s 1918 film about a street criminal transformed through his love of a young teacher. Composer Dmitri Shostakovich dramatizes this melancholy tale of love and transformation with his vividly dynamic and lyrical score.
