For more than half a century, New Jersey Ballet has thrilled audiences from Bergen to Cape May with top quality professional ballet and has given hundreds of thousands of adults and children their first introduction to ballet and inspired in many a lifelong love of the arts.
This colorful remounting of Don Quixote, based on the 1900 version staged for the Bolshoi by Alexander Gorsky, is rich in Spanish color, flavor, and the humor of Cervantes’ masterpiece about an old knight, his squire, and their fanciful foray into the age of chivalry.
One of New Jersey Ballet’s most popular productions for children, Cinderella is a romp through the well-known fairy tale. See the hours of the clock come to life and dance, a Fairy Godmother and beautiful Fairies of the Four seasons in the enchanted garden, and the pumpkin which turns into a coach before your very eyes! The classic fairy tale comes to life with lavish sets and costumes, performed with New Jersey Ballet’s original “storyteller” narration so little children can follow the story.
