Metropolitan Ballet Company (MBC) will open its season with two extraordinary storybook productions and a company premiere.
“Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse,” with sparkling choreography by Jennifer Sommers, is based on the book by award-winning children’s author Kevin Henkes and the fairytale classic “Peter Pan” is a breathtaking original production by noted New York City choreographer Kanji Segawa that was created for MBC in 2007.
Also on the program will be Robert Rodham’s “Snow Scene and Snow Pas de Deux” from “The Nutcracker,” once a part of Pennsylvania Ballet’s original Nutcracker production. These magical story ballets, brought to life with exuberant dancing, will delight children of all ages.
