American Ballet Theatre: Harlequinade at Segerstrom Center for the Arts January 17-20

Harlequinade-Segerstrom

The West Coast Premiere of Harlequinade begins Thursday, Jan 17 – 20 at Segerstrom Center for the Arts. My family cannot wait to experience the magic!

On January 17, 2019, Segerstrom will celebrate the show’s opening by featuring kid friendly activities, photo opps, craft and coloring stations. The children will also have an opportunity to meet the sensational dancers from the American Ballet Theater. The pre-show activities will begin promptly at 6pm.

When my girls were little, they attended ballet classes. ( I miss those days) My youngest son would press his face against the studio window, and gaze at the ballet dancers in awe. He would call them princesses, and tell me how much he loved watching them. I can’t wait for him to experience this lovely, kid friendly show!

Thank you Segerstrom Center for the Arts for inviting us to opening night of Harlequinade. All opinions are my own.

The Story
In the first act, the Harlequin and Columbine are kept apart by her father Cassandre, who would prefer that his daughter marry the wealthier (and older!) Lèandre. Not to be deterred, Harlequin tries futilely to win Cassandre over, only to be turned away again and again by Cassandre and his servant Pierrot. Finally, with the help of a Good Fairy and Pierrot’s sympathetic wife Pierrette, Harlequin’s bad fortunes are turned around, and Cassandre agrees to bless the union. Harlequin and Columbine are married in the festive second act, when love finally triumphs over all.

The Center’s International Dance Series is made possible by the Audrey Steele Burnand Endowed Fund for International Dance and The Segerstrom Foundation Endowment for Great Performances. Segerstrom Center for the Arts thanks its corporate partners including Kia Motors America, Official Automotive Partner; and United Airlines, Official Airline.
