Metropolitan Ballet Company (MBC) will open its season on Saturday, November 22nd & Sunday, November 23rd with a family-oriented program featuring one of the most enduring fairy tales of all time, Hansel & Gretel. Created for Metropolitan in 2009 by highly acclaimed New York City choreographer Kanji Segawa, with stage designs by NYC set designer Adam Riggar and costumes by Elena Comendador, this vivid and memorable story ballet follows the adventures of the clever Hansel and his brave sister Gretel, as they foil the witch’s evil plans, and in the best fairy tale tradition, live happily ever after.

Marius Petipa’s celebrated Le Jardin Animé (The Animated Garden), from the second act of the great classical ballet Le Corsaire and The Sailors, an athletic folk dance for boys as staged by the Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble’s Artistic Director, Taras Lewyckyj, will complete this action-packed program that will appeal to all audiences, both young and young at heart.
