“Commedia dell' Arte”
City Ballet's Commedia dell'Arte is inspired by the ballet Pulcinella which premiered in 1920 with choreography by Leonide Massine. This cast of lively and amusing "Commedia dell'Arte" characters are each entangled in Pulcinella's romantic intrigues. He manages to keep multiple romances going despite the interference of his nemesis, Prudenza, and the blunders of Zanni (the town jester). Stravinsky's delightful neo-classical score, along with imaginative costumes and choreography, make City Ballet's Commedia dell'Arte a joy-filled ballet for all ages!

The Magic Toyshop
A young orphan girl seeks shelter in a toyshop, where she is delighted to find a magic rose that brings toy dolls to life! Many adventures follow as she tries to keep her beloved new friend, the Harlequin Doll, out of trouble. The Magic Toyshop is enchanting, and the perfect way to celebrate City Ballet returning to the stage and kicking off our tenth anniversary season!

There is a designated minimum per household to access virtual events, but you may choose one of the higher price levels if you would like to offer more support. Everyone will get the same view regardless of which ticket they buy.
